Ferguson says United will not spend next month.

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed he will ‘definitely not’ be adding to his Manchester United squad during the January transfer window.

“I will not be bringing anybody in, in January, definitely not,” Ferguson told the Mail on Sunday.

Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has unequivocally stated that he will not be making any signings   in January but you can bet the Scot will be keeping one beady eye on the transfer market.

Ferguson strengthened his squad with the likes of Alexander Buttner, Shinji Kagawa and Robin van Persie over the summer and despite the Red Devils six-point lead at the top of the Premier League, there remains room for improvement at Old Trafford.

Left-back Buttner has been handed just one appeearance since joining from Vitesse in the summer, suggesting that he has not done enough to convince the United boss he is the man to eventually replace 31-year-old Patrice Evra. If Everton’s Leighton Baines is available for around £12m, Fergie will surely be tempted to pounce.

In central defence, United boast a whole host of talented youngsters but much will depend on Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic’s long-term fitness and if either breaks down next month, United could enter the transfer market, with German centre-half Mats Hummels admired in Manchester.

Meanwhile, winger Nani is almost certain to leave Old Trafford next summer. With the futures of the likes of Tom Ince and Wilfried Zaha likely to be decided in January, surely Ferguson will not pass up the chance to bring in one of the youngsters at the right price.
