Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled out the possibility of plunging into the transfer market to solve Manchester United´s striking crisis.

Louis Saha and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have only just returned to training after long-term problems, while Carlos Tevez is effectively only a week into his pre-season after an extended lay-off following Argentina´s Copa America campaign and confirmation Wayne Rooney suffered a hairline fracture of his left foot only worsened an already difficult situation for United.

"Carlos Tevez is available now and Louis Saha and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are training," said Ferguson. "With Wayne as well, we have four strikers so I am not looking at a situation where I have to add to that number."
