Former Manchester United
manager Sir Alex Ferguson feels fortunate to no longer be involved in
the sanctioning and negotiation of transfers given the ‘amazing’ fees
being spent on the acquisition of players.

A staggering £835 million was outlaid by Premier League clubs alone
in the recently closed summer transfer window, with some £150 million of
this total cost being covered by Manchester United in a bid to rebuild
the ‘broken’ squad inherited by Louis van Gaal.

Twice since Ferguson departed in the summer of last year have the
club surpassed their previous transfer record, with David Moyes
recruiting Juan Mata from Chelsea in January, before Angel di Maria’s
arrival last month dwarfed that fee by over £20 million.

Only four times in over 26 years did Ferguson pay in excess of £25
million for a player, but this has happened on five occasions since he
decided to retire from his position after Manchester United had won the
title in 2013.

Ferguson reaction

“Certainly it’s amazing, the amount of money spent nowadays,” Ferguson told reporters at the UEFA coaches seminar.

“My personal opinion is that it’s never going to change, the world is
progressing, and transfer fees with it, and I don’t know if there will
be an end to it. Fortunately, I’m not at the hub of it nowadays.”

New era

Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Angel di Maria, Daley Blind
and Radamel Falcao arrived at Old Trafford before the transfer deadline
in a bid to restore the club to former glories, and much will be
expected of this Van Gaal era.

This new Manchester United regime will officially begin in the club’s
next outing with all transfer activity now concluded, and Queens Park
Rangers will be the opposition a week on Sunday.

Van Gaal was able to create a great deal optimism after they way he
led the Netherlands at the World Cup, performances that continued into
pre-season on his return to club football, but the bubble has been burst
since the start of the competitive campaign.

A opening day defeat to Swansea was followed by a draw with
Sunderland, before that Capital One Cup humiliation to League One’s MK
Dons. Just one point was taken from the following fixture against
newly-promoted Burnley, and the meeting with QPR suddenly feels like a
must win game.
