Man Utd legend Neville expects Ferguson to continue transfer spending

Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes Sir Alex Ferguson's transfer spending is not yet over.

Phil Jones was the first of United's three summer signings so far, with the club also agreeing deals with Aston Villa for Ashley Young and Atletico Madrid for David de Gea.

Neville isn't convinced the spending will stop there, though. He told The New Paper that he's expecting at least one more signing.

"I think the manager will sign a central midfielder because of Owen Hargreaves leaving and Paul Scholes retiring," he said.

As for who that player might be, Gary admits he doesn't have a clue, just as he has always been kept in the dark around transfers.

"The club keep transfers very quiet because they don't want other clubs to be aware that they're moving for somebody. They don't even tell the players, they don't tell the staff… it's done very quietly."
