Manchester United to spend £50m on transfers in 14 days

Exclusive: Manchester United to spend £50m on transfers in 14 days
Sir Alex Ferguson plans quick-fire pre-holiday transfer spree

Sir Alex Ferguson has told the Manchester United board he wants to conclude his £50million summer transfer spending within the next fortnight.

Fergie wants to build swiftly on United's Premier League and Champions League double triumph by bolstering his squad before the start of the mad summer scramble for players.

United completed the signings of Nani, Anderson and Owen Hargreaves within two weeks of the end of last season and Fergie wants this summer's business done before he goes on his annual summer holiday to the exclusive resort of Cap Ferrat in the South of France next week.

Top of Fergie's wanted list are Sevilla's Brazilian duo, striker Luis Fabiano and defender Daniel Alves, who are likely to cost United a combined £30million.

Alves is seen as Gary Neville's permanent replacement at right-back, but Fergie remains keen on Manchester City and England defender Micah Richards, despite his likely £20m price tag.

There is likely to be a maximum of four new faces at United this summer, while three departures are inevitable - defenders Mikael Silvestre and Gerard Pique, as well as injury-plagued striker Louis Saha.

i was kind of expecting that to be what would happen irrespective of how we

finished the season,

theres no point in a drawn out transfer

it just gives chelski the chance to come in and offer double his wages

think j.o.mikel (thanks for the 10 mil roman still makes me laugh) and now the new

chelski right back if we are to belive the recent meida coverage surronding utds

interest

I heard Dani Alves, Fabiano + Richards it was in the Daily Mirror this morning i think.

Hope it's true would LOVE those three, dont know where Richards would fit in though, because however good he is theres no way in hell he will break Vida and Rio.

i havent seen so much these 3 players at work.
dont you think daniel alves is a bit too thin ? i mean that could be a drawback.
and regarding richards i personally dont know much about him but he sounds expensive. hope it will worth the money. in case vida or rio get injured he could be usefull. but still....spending 20 mil pounds just in that case seems a bit too much , i just hope he is talented.

It actually says "within 14 days" and it would make sense as, during Euro 08, prices will begin to rocket as players prove themselves (or not).

none of these players are in the euros though so it wont have to be concluded very quickly but it would be better if we could do it quickly, however i doubt this is true, i cant see richards and dani alves comming where will they all play, and plus the fact wes brown has signed a new contract and of course rio and vida will be the heart of our deffence for the next 5 years :)

I think that the only player's United need to sign are a wonderkid right-back who can eventually replace Neville, and a clinical forward. If Saha regains his fitness, he'd be the answer, but as he is built like a peice of glass, it's unlikely. Offload Saha and bring a goalscorer in. If Fabiano can do the business in La Liga, like Torres, let's hope he has the same impact here, like Torres ;).

how can you argue with fabiano, look at his goal scoring record from the last season he's a poacher which is what we need

I would love to see fabiano play for us!! I think a player of his mould and ability is the final piece to our puzzle. 39 goals for sevilla in 79 games not to mention earlier in his career at sao paolo he hit 118 goals in just 160 games

I'd love to see both them In United squad.
Luis Fabiano scored an impressive 34 goals in 44 games for the Spanish side last season.
And his compatriot Dani Alves, a dead-ball specialist, is on many clubs wish list after impressing with his raiding runs from right-back.

What a load of old tosh.....
This is just speculation and paper talk.
Until it is confirmed I wouldn't get your hopes up at all.

If all these transfers go through Sevilla will be cripppled and I feel sorry for them. :(

They've just lost keita to Barca, if United take Alves & Fabiano they'll have extensive rebuilding to do. Poor blokes.

Personally I don't rate Alves as highly as many seem to do. Ramos is far greater.

What a load of tosh this story is.

We're not gonna sign Richards AND Alves if either of them.

I would gladly take Richards and Fabiano, but Alves is highly over-rated. He can't defend and I doubt he would adapt to the English game.

I can see us signing Fabiano, but the other two are anyones guess.
