It seems chief executive David Gill's prediction of a low transfer activity does not mean United will not purchase any players in the January window, with Sir Alex confirming he's looking to make additions to the squad.
The Reds are continually linked with Owen Hargreaves and Gareth Bale, they are the most likely arrivals as the other names linked with us are strikers and the Boss declared he would not sign an attacker.
'We have brought a lot of players back to the club from loan spells and we are looking to maybe sign one or two in January as well,' the Scot declared.
'We are looking at a few things. I won't discuss any names, but we are looking at various options.'
Ferguson also rubbished claims Ronaldo would be sold to Real for any price, stating the in-form Portuguese winger is 'untouchable', to use a a very fashionable phrase.
'The story about Ronaldo is nonsense, though. We have not had any offer from Real Madrid, but his future is not even an issue,' he confirmed.
Of course, the FA Cup is very much an issue for him right now as the third round match with Villa is looming. However, he set his eyes on the end of the path: the trip to the New Wembley that, by the help of God, might be ready for the Cup Final.
Fergie is one of the most successful managers of FA Cup history (I'd say THE most succesful but I did not do any statistical research on the matter) so no wonder he's eager to write football history by winning the first ever final held in the magnificent new stadium.
'The Cup Final is expected to be at the new Wembley and all clubs will want to go there at some point, but I am hoping that we can do it this year.
'It will be interesting to see it when it does open,' he stated the obvious. 'So much has been done to it over the last five or six years that it will be a relief when they finally open the gates. Hopefully, they will be opening the gates to us.
'Everyone is anticipating that it will be the best stadium in the world and it should be considering the money that has been spent on it because it has cost a lot. I am certainly expecting it to be special.'
