Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled Manchester United out of making any January signings, which will be music to the ears of Tottenham.

United have been strongly linked to a winter move for Dimitar Berbatov in order lighten the load on strikers Wayne Rooney, Carlos Tevez and Louis Saha.

The Bulgarian's agent recently whipped the media into a frenzy by revealing a club of United's class would appeal to Berbatov, but Spurs have since stated he could only leave for a British transfer record.

It appears Tottenham can now just focus their attentions on seeing off Chelsea's advances, after Ferguson revealed he will not be making any January moves.

“Most of it is agent driven and there will always be stories when the window arrives,†he said.

“It's all a game isn't it, who might people buy, that's the nature of the game for Manchester United.

“But we're not making any moves at all.â€
In all honesty the gaffer's been saying it for quite some time now

Ok. They must be confident Saha can remain fit and get back to his best, which when he is at is as good as any striker in the world

Also Gazza and Scholes returning and Park will be like new signings. Fergie said Park and Vidic were the two best players against Birmingham.

So I guess we don't actually need anybody at all............ :)

(also there is a slight possibilty that Manchua will feature in the second half of the season)

The Glazer family are prepared to fund a swoop for £30m-rated Dimitar Berbatov if Sir Alex Ferguson wants to fight Chelsea for the coveted Bulgarian striker.

Tottenham, who are insisting that Berbatov must remain at White Hart Lane - at least until the end of the season, have nevertheless prepared the ground for the striker's eventual exit.

They have drawn up a new contract for Jermain Defoe and are lining up an end-of-season move for Valencia's David Villa.

United boss Fergie has publicly said that there will be no incoming Old Trafford business this month but he is monitoring the Berbatov situation.

But the firm stance from Spurs - though manager Juande Ramos teased suitors by suggesting it would take a British record to prise Berbatov away - adds to the notion that the striker won't be on the Reds' radar until May.

Ferguson doesn't want to indulge in mid-season inflated transfer prices but he remains a keen Berbatov fan and a summer pursuit looks inevitable.

However, if moneybags Chelsea attempt to steal a march in the remaining 25 days of the transfer window, then Fergie may decide to act.

He has already proved that if he is in danger of being beaten to a priority target then he'll move quickly rather than risk losing the player.

In 2004, United were happy to let Wayne Rooney remain at Everton but when Newcastle put in a bid to the Goodison club the Reds moved swiftly and outbid the Geordies with a £30m transfer package.

United are expected to announce profits in excess of £75m later this month - so the funds are in place should the Berbatov situation flare up.
