Sir Alex Ferguson has today hinted that there are more deals in the pipeline, after unveiling Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell to the media.
“We could possibly bring one or two more in,” he said. “When there’s a major international tournament on, there’s a delay in the transfer market. But now the European Championships are over, we’re trying to bring someone in. We’ve always done well in terms of getting players at the end of season, instead of waiting all summer. In Kagawa’s case, there was a fair bit of negotiating and that kept going for weeks. As for Powell, we knew Dario Gradi [Crewe Alexandra director of football] would help us do the deal quickly.”
