Robson predicts United spending spree

Published Add your comment

Manchester United will spend in the summer, as Sir Alex Ferguson will be looking to upgrade his squad for next year, according to Bryan Robson.


The former Old Trafford captain believes that the Red Devils’ boss has amassed another fine crop of young players, but will make significant signings to help compete with their rich rivals Manchester City.


Robson believes Ferguson will see winning the title this year as one of his greatest achievements, though the overhaul will happen regardless due to the resources available to Etihad Stadium boss Roberto Mancini.


“City can afford to do that (bring in top players) but the one thing Sir Alex will do, whether he wins the title or not, is to build in the summer,” he told the Manchester Evening News.


“He will do that to try and compete and get back above, or to stay in front of Man City, depending on what happens during the next three games.”


The destination of this year’s Premier League title is in the balance after United followed a shock loss at Wigan Athletic by throwing away a two-goal lead to draw 4-4 at home to Everton last weekend.


City’s subsequent victory at Wolves relegated the Molineux side and closed the gap on their rivals to three points ahead of the two sides meeting on Monday night.


A win for City would take them above United on goal difference with just two games remaining.
