Tottenham fans may be closing down the days until the January transfer window shuts, but they receive a welcome piece of news today from Manchester United chief executive David Gill, who has told the BBC that the Premier League leaders will not be making any new signings. It’s looking like Berbatov could be staying at the Lane.
“I don’t think there will be any purchases in the transfer window,” he said.
“We invested heavily last summer and believe we have a very good squad that can really go for the honours in the balance of the season.
“We will assess in the summer as well always do and see where things have gone well and not so well, and see where we can strengthen.”
Indeed, anyone watching their 6-0 thrashing of Newcastle will confirm that the Red Devils are in fantastic form at the moment, with the Premier League crown a strong likelihood and the Champions League surely a very real prospect this campaign. Are there any weaknesses in Sir Alex Ferguson’s team at the moment?
