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.'
