Fergie: We’ll buy three players

ALEX FERGUSON reckons he can land as many as THREE of his top transfer targets in the summer.

Big changes are expected at Manchester United, with a clutch of players retiring or seeing their contracts end.

And Fergie has insisted the cash will be there for him to bring in top-class replacements during the close season.

He said: "We have certain targets in mind and I think two or three will be fulfilled. There's no question of that.

"The Glazer family have always been supportive of our desires to improve the team."

Top of his list is likely to be a goalkeeper, with either Schalke's Manuel Neuer or Atletico Madrid's David de Gea in the frame to replace Edwin van der Sar. The Scot is also likely to boost his midfield. Wesley Sneijder, Jack Rodwell and Blackpool's Charlie Adam are all in the running.

Fergie could look for a new centre-back, too, with Bolton's Gary Cahill and Thiago Silva of AC Milan among the group of possibles.

A new forward seems less likely, as United's boss has declared himself happy with the striking options he has.

He added: "What we are good at is bringing young players to the club, like Chicharito.

"If you look at the last six years, we've brought through young players like Ronaldo and Nani.

"We're good at that and I don't think we should change what we're good at. When we identify the right young players, that's the way we'll go."
