The Manchester United manager has reportedly been given a large war chest by the club’s American owners as they look to build a team capable of ousting Manchester City.
If United’s derby defeat proved one thing, it was that the side needs a major makeover especially in the centre of the park in order to become top dogs in England once more.
Paul Scholes, for all his experience and ability, simply does not have the legs to orchestrate proceedings like he used to do in his hay day. Park Ji-Sung maybe good for marketing reasons, but on the pitch he failed to make an impact and looked largely subdued
as Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri ran riot.
Even the evergreen Ryan Giggs looked out of his depth at the Etihad and it clearly means that it is time for new recruits at Old Trafford. Finally it seems that the club hierarchy have agreed that the team needs freshening up and have given Fergie the license
The Scot has been eyeing several top quality players across and now finally he has the money to secure their signature. Eden Hazard is on top of the list and would be a mouth-watering addition to the United line-up.
Fergie, though, is also partial to the prospect of Tottenham star Luka Modric plying his trade in Manchester as Scholes’ replacement, while Shinji Kagawa has also been mooted as a potential target.
Hazard would be the stardust many United fans are craving and given what the Lille man can do on the field, the Reds would surely benefit up-front with his services.
An attacker with the ability to go past his man with uncanny easy, the Belgian also possesses a repertoire of skills that can bamboozle even the best of the defenders.
After being spotted in Manchester, he is likely to sign either for United or City, but while the transfer is still uncertain, Gary Neville believes that the Ferguson will surely sign some new faces this summer.
"I'm sure he'll improve his squad. I think he has to. He's an honest person and he'll recognize there are areas of the squad he needs to strengthen," he said.
The reigning champions next take on Swansea at home on Sunday.
