Man U to spend 95 mn pounds for new signings

Manchester United Chief Executive David Gill has told his club's protesting fans that there is nothing to be gloomy about, and claims that manager Sir Alex Ferguson will have 95 million pounds to spend for new signings this summer.

"People say Alex is saying money is there because he has to. Anyone who knows Alex Ferguson knows he wouldn't say that if he didn't mean what he said. The money is definitely there," The Sun quoted Gill, as saying.

"The financial results will show the figures are about 95 million pounds cash. We are not in a situation whereby Alex is restricted in what he wants to do with the club. We can invest in the players, the training ground and the stadium," he added.

Fan protests had became a part and parcel of United home games last season with the Green and Gold campaign particularly prominent.

However, Gill insisted: "The fans protesting are not going to change their opinion even if we win three Champions League titles in a row."

"We couldn't have been much more successful in the last three years, but they are simply never going to be happy," he added.

Ferguson has hinted that there may be only one big signing with Fulham defender Chris Smalling.

Meanwhile, Mexican forward Javier Hernandez has been signed on for around 18 million pounds, and it is believed that Karim Benzema and David Silva will also be on the Old Trafford radar.
