While Ferguson expects City to splash the cash again in the summer â€” and also predicts improvements from Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs â€” he believes United are on the Âthreshold of Âanother period of Premier League domination.
â€śThe one thing we have shown this year is that we are not going to go away,â€ť said the United boss.
â€śOur record over the last 20 years tells you that and, with the youth we have in the squad, I would Âexpect us to have a real good challenge next year as well.
â€śWhether we can go on Âanother run of three titles in a row, whoâ€™s to say? But the one thing I do know is that material is there for us to do that.
â€śWith the squad of players weâ€™ve got, there is maybe 14 players who are aged 23 or under who could play together for another seven or eight years.
â€śWeâ€™ve also got improving players. The likes of Shinji ÂKagawa will be much better next year, and weâ€™ve got Rafael, David De Gea, Alex Buttner, and Phil Jones who can do anything he wants to.
â€śObviously we have to deal with the fact that one or two players are getting older, it looks good in terms of Âprotecting most positions.â€ť
