A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United…
“Certainly it’s amazing, the amount of money spent these days,” Ferguson said.
“My personal opinion is that it is 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.”

In response to claims that the United stopper could now be his country’s number one choice between the sticks, Del Bosque is quoted as saying, “(Iker) Casilas, as well as a legend of the selection, is the captain, the player with most Spanish caps and he’s incumbent in his team, Real Madrid.”
So it appears the United ‘keeper may have to wait a little longer to be the undisputed first-choice for his country.
