Manchester United chief executive David Gill has not ruled out a move for Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves, but has admitted that Manchester United do not plan to ‘do a great deal’ of spending in the January transfer window.
United attempted to sign Hargreaves in the summer but Bayern Munich refused to let him leave and they have no shown sign of wavering in their desire to retain the England international.
“I think we all know the area in which we want to strengthen, but I’m not going to comment on that,” Gill told Manchester United radio.
Funds available, Gill insists, but he doubts whether any significant purchases will be made in January.
“The money is there but traditionally we do most of our big spending in the summer and I think that will continue,” he explained.
“Things may change. If there’s an area in which we want to do something then we’ll do it, but at the moment we don’t plan to do a great deal.
“We’ve already brought in Henrik Larsson, while a number of the players who have been out on loan are also back at the club.”
