    Actions speak louder than words, we'll see how much money is spent.

    It's aaaaaaaaaaawn.

    And twitter speculation thread etc.

    Seriously though I've always thought wages is a bigger issue for us than transfer fees, which is why we need to offload some of the deadwood in our squad. Berbatov, Owen, Anderson, Park and possibly Giggs/Scholes/Fletcher retiring or a Rio paycut will free up a good £300-£400k p/w in the wage budget I would've thought, which will give us some room for signings.

    That is pretty much a generic Gill quote. We always have some funds available, and I'd be shocked if we hadn't already identified targets.

    “@ManUtdStuff: David Gill (#MUFC CEO) on availability of funds: "Oh yeah without a doubt, in the next few months there could be interesting developments."”

    Good old Dave.

    David Gill has dropped a bombshell by saying that Manchester United have identified their transfer targets but have no funds available. The days of breaking transfer records seem to over as Gill explained the lack of money would necessitate a shift towards less in demand players.

    He is hardly going to say that is he ?

    I hope we weren't counting on reaching the CL Final three out of every four years.

    No but it's a poor return on the investment.

    But we can hardly say that we were shit in Europe and therefore shouldnt invest. I'm sure a few players will be heading out which will free up the wage bill and bring a bit into the transfer funds. Also it's possible Giggs and Scholes could retire (hopefully not) which would reduce the wage bill further. I think we need reinforcements to ensure we last longer in the CL next year

    Gill: they money is there should SAF want it
    Fergie: i'm happy with the squad

    I'm sure Gill & SAF do this double act to just to calm down the fans..

    I am hanging on to the 'interesting' part of the quote. I am hoping that we are going to shock the footballing world with some extreme muppetry.

    SAF just said we invest in players who can be at the club for a long time, seems more focused on bringing players through rather than spending big bucks, tuck the cocks in boys! He says we've set our stall out and our squad will evolve.

    SAF on the awards program a minute ago;

    'We want to add to the squad'

    'So have you highlighted any particular players?'

    'Yes. We've set our stall out for certain players.'

    To me that sounds like he's identified players to buy.

    He specifically mentioned Rio being 34 and this probably being Scholes last season.

    So that's a CB and a CM.

    Except that we did sign three players for a total of £55m last year. Obviously people with an agenda against the Glazers want to ignore that fact but it is what it is.

    It does bring a slight bit of doubt when you look at the strength of our options in midfield, and how we had to rely on him coming back to keep up the pace with City. I love the guy, and i'm sure everybody else does too but signing him on for another year, i'm not too sure whether it's the way forward or not.
