Javier Hernandez will be out for a few more weeks, Tom Cleverley may not be seen until the new year and Anderson and Nemanja Vidic are both long term absentees amongst others.
But Sir Alex rarely goes shopping during the January Transfer window and has stated he isn’t looking to do so this term either despite being linked with a number of names.
Despite his utterances, Nicky Butt thinks otherwise.
The former United midfielder spoke to the official website today about the team, and believes Sir Alex could be keeping his cards close to his chest with his comments,
“Every team can improve, no matter who they are.
“Even Barcelona can improve so I’m sure Sir Alex will sign players, whether it be in midfield, defence or up front.
“He’s always looking to enhance his squad.”
These comments from Butt will be music to the ears of many fans who will hope to see Sir Alex bring in a fresh face or two, especially in the midfield.
