Yet again, the club reinforced their earlier statements that Sir Alex Ferguson still had the Ronaldo money available if he wanted to spend it. It's the boss' choice to keep the chequebook closed, according to chief executive David Gill.
'We are looking at players all the time, the money from Ronaldo is sitting there in the bank account, we have been clear on that.'
'But Alex has been very clear he is not going out to chase and overpay for a player just because everyone else thinks we should. He's a Scot, he wants value for money.
'We have spent a lot of money on Chris Smalling and that's the sort of player we want to bring in - a young player who we feel will develop as a player and hopefully give us service for many, many years to come.'
And of course debt is no longer the road to ruin: the Glazers are doing just fine, thank you very much, according t Gill.
'The Glazers have given no indication to me that they want to sell and in that case they cannot buy the asset, it's not for sale. The Glazers have no wish to sell and from our perspective they are running the club in the right way.'
Am I sure the Red Knights are better? No. But it's a tad embarassing that the club still considers us ignorant. Gill can talk as much as he likes, only the summer transfer window will prove anything. And if we'll again search for free transfers like Owen and cheap youngsters like Obertan then his assurances will seem very hollow indeed.
