Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be given £160 million to help bolster his squad ahead of the new season, according to the Guardian.

The Glazer family, who have rarely allowed Ferguson to spend big in the transfer window, with give the Scot free-reign to buy the world's best players this summer.

Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea has already been confirmed as the first signing of Ferguson's this summer, but more is expected from United.


Ferguson has maintained for years that there is little value in the transfer market, with the Glazers demanding that players brought in can be re-sold at a high value.

United have only brought one player, Dimitar Berbatov, for over £3 million having been over the age of 27.

The likes of Javier Pastore, Jack Rodwell, Wesley Sneijder and Gary Cahill have all been strongly linked with the club as United prepare for next season.
