Speaking in New York City ahead of United's pre-season friendly against the MLS All-Stars on Wednesday, the Reds boss admitted he expected to start the 2011/12 campaign with the same squad currently at his disposal.
"At this moment in time I can't see any other additions," he said. "The type of players we may have been looking for are not available to us. So therefore I have to be happy with the players I have and carry on."
The Reds have been heavily linked with a number of central midfielders this summer, including Wesley Sneijder and Samir Nasri. Both players appear willing to leave their current clubs (Internazionale and Arsenal, respectively) although Sir Alex's comments today indicate Old Trafford is an unlikely destination.
