Fergie warns rivals: Man Utd ready to splash out this summer

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has dropped a big hint of a major summer spending spree. Ferguson spoke with the club's owners in the aftermath of Monday's title triumph.

"Having spoken with the Glazer family, I think there's every intention we want to kick on now," said United's manager Friday.

Asked if United's commercial growth would enhance his ability to buy players, Ferguson said: "Yeah. Absolutely. I hope so. Yeah, it will.

"There's no doubt that, worldwide, it (the commercial operation) seems to me to be getting bigger. It has been fantastic and that's credit to the commercial people. They've done a great job and of course the football team has been the platform for that. But they're capitalising on such a great profile of the club.

"We're happy where we are at the moment, that's for sure. We've attracted really good sponsors."
