Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson reveals that he is looking to add a marquee signing in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has hinted that he is looking to make a big name signing in the transfer window.

Following their impressive title win, it seems that Ferguson is keen on bolstering his squad even further during the summer.

The likes of Gareth Bale and Robert Lewandowski have been linked with a move to Old Trafford, along with a potential return for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ferguson has claimed that "everything is in place" for a marquee signing, with the Glazer family backing him financially.

"Everything is in place for a big signing. I think that the Glazers have been great," Ferguson is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror. "Whenever I have asked, they have delivered. If I ask to go for a certain player, I think they will do that.

"When I spoke about value in the market a while back, I was talking about young, developing players. Maybe there has been a wind of change and I could go for a really top player now. We have a nucleus of young players here, but we may spend something.

"When it's a top player, it doesn't matter what position they play in. I will bring them in if they add to the team. Last season we had Hernandez, Welbeck and Rooney and we still went out and bought Robin van Persie."

United have already signed Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace, who will join up with the side next season.
