Gill Promises Investment In Players

Gill Promises Investment In Players

David Gill, wisely, have not revealed the size of United's transfer budget but insisted Sir Alex will have money to spend.

United have won the league but there's already talk about the need to strengthen the squad though the celebrations are barely over. The tabloids try to identify Sir Alex's three targets while chief executive David Gill assured everyone that United are going to plunge into the transfer market.

'You can't just assume the success you've achieved will continue,' Gill told Manchester United Radio.

'You have to always look to improve and invest, and that's what we're going to do. We've got a great team who have done very well and we'll be looking to tweak it here and there.

'Manchester United has been - and always will be - a club that buys players as well as giving youth its chance. And that's what we'll see next year and for many years to come.'

Gill, having previously paid tribute to the Glazers' work, stressed once again how much support they had given to Fergie throughout the campaign which ended in title glory.

'The Glazer family understands the sports business and know that success on the pitch is key to success off the pitch,' Gill said.

'Before they'd taken over there was a lot of talk about what the ownership structure was going to be and we had the disciplines of the stock exchange to follow. I think now, with the private ownership, we have stability and can concentrate on delivering a great team on the pitch.'

A great team has certainly been delivered for this season and Gill admitted it was a special feeling to win the league again after four years.

'It's a good feeling all round for everybody associated with the club. As we prepared for the season and brought in new players, we wanted to have a good go at Chelsea. The fact that we hadn't won the title for three seasons meant we wanted to get it back.

'This is truly a team effort - obviously from Alex, his coaches and the players, but also the people selling the tickets, preparing the stadium, making the food, and, of course, the fans. It's been a brilliant recovery.'

It seems that Bayern are not so desperate to keep Hargreaves now that they missed out on the Champions League and vowed to build a brand new team. As for a goalscorer, there are very few genuine strikers who are good enough for United but their price is reasonable, too. I'd go for Defoe and keep Saha with all his injuries.

Berbatov is a tad slow but he has a wonderful first touch. However, Spurs want to keep him badly and he does not want to go, unlike Carrick.

How about Pablo Aimar, he wouldnt cost much, his wages wouldnt be crippling and he could give us a burst of pace and killer passing ability when we let him off the bench. No way is Defoe good enough for us we need someone who is decent in the air, its no good playing wingers if they have no one to aim for in the box someone like Huntelaar would be great, ***** it lets bid for Kaka we'll all need to chip in though, I'll sell my cd collection should get about 50 quid towards the transfer fee.

defoe is a good option and i dont think he would mind being on the bench some of the time

why is defoe so highly rated. personally, i rate him as one of the worst engllish strikers in the league, and his gaol to game ratio must be pretty bad. though he is fast, he is unbelievably weak, and his accuracy is awful, im not sure why he is linked with all of the big four clubs, he cant even make it into the tottenham team!!!
