Fergie's chequebook closed already?

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he has ended this summer’s business in the transfer market, but the speculation is unlikely to stop.

Fergie has on more than one occasion not quite been as good as his word. Cast your minds back to summer 2007 when United signed up Nani and Anderson. Fergie then issued a statement suggesting that no more deals would be done that summer only for Carlos Tevez to arrive in early August on a two-year loan.

It’s certainly not out of the question that United will strengthen further after the arrivals of Michael Owen, Antonio Valencia and Gabriel Obertan.

It has been widely anticipated that Sir Alex will swoop again with Brazil starlet Douglas Costa one of the most heavily linked players to the club, but if you believe his latest words that will be it for United this summer.

He said: "It is the end of our business, so all these stories about who we are supposed to be getting - forget it."

Ferguson meanwhile is confident the 29-year-old Owen can upset the Premier League odds and plug the gap left by Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez.

But it’s hard to think that the boss has drawn a line under his transfer business this summer with four weeks to go before the start of the season.

It would be no great surprise if Fergie is still targeting young forward Costa and attempting to drive down the price of the £18million-rated Gremio forward by stating his chequebook is closed.

One thing's for sure: don't waste your next football bet going against further transfers!
