Sir Alex Ferguson is set to get a budget of £165 million for the summer transfer period, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Despite Manchester United’s parent company reporting a loss of up to £108.9 million, Ferguson is reportedly preparing to rebuild the United squad with players who can set success as a goal for the long term.

While Ferguson may not need to spend as much as £165 million on rebuilding an already strong squad, Manchester United will be looking for younger players who aren’t yet in their prime so that when Ferguson retires, he will be able to leave the squad in a successful way.


Jack Rodwell, Ashley Young, Gareth Bale, Jordan Henderson,Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Douglas Costa and Manuel Neuer are all on Ferguson’s list of hopeful signings, the Manchester Evening News is claiming.

Only two of those players are over the age of 21, and with other youngsters Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley and Federico Macheda currently out on loan, Ferguson is reportedly trying to decrease the average age in the Manchester United squad to begin rebuilding.

United fans will be delighted at the prospect of new blood entering Old Trafford, particularly as Ferguson’s tenure as coaching is slowly coming to an end point. The hero manager has brought 18 titles to United, and recent signings Javier Hernandez and Chris Smalling have so far shone for the Red Devils.
