Manchester United vow to spend big this summer

Published 12 Comments

Manchester United are ready to keep spending big to keep themselves top of the Premier League and to continue improving.

Old Trafford chief executive David Gill insisted manager Sir Alex Ferguson would continue to be backed in the transfer market by the club’s hierarchy.

Gill, who is leaving his post at Manchester United this summer to be replaced by Ed Woodward, said the kind of investment that saw Robin van Persie signed for £24million last year would continue.

One motivation for this is the expected Manchester City investment to come after they failed to defend their Premier League title.

Chelsea are likely to spend big once more as they attempt to claim the league title for the first time since 2010.

"I'm sure all the clubs who missed out this season will be doing business in the summer - as we will be - with a view to come back all guns blazing next year," Gill is quoted as saying by talkSPORT.

The importance of purchasing Van Persie last summer was highlighted once again as the Dutchman scored a sensational hat-trick in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Monday night.

That victory meant Manchester United were English champions for a record 20th time, with 13 of those being won by Ferguson himself.
