Sir Alex Ferguson believes it is unlikely that Manchester United will add to their squad before next month's Community Shield at Wembley.
The Red Devils, who will take on neighbours Manchester City in the Community Shield on 7th August, have already bolstered their ranks with Ashley Young, Phil Jones and David de Gea this summer.
While a replacement for the retired Paul Scholes is also thought to be on Ferguson's radar - with United linked with the likes of Luka Modric, Samir Nasri and Wesley Sneijder - such a signing has so far failed to materialise.
But Ferguson insists he is happy with his squad at present, saying: "We lost five players in their 30s this summer.
"That helped finance the three younger players - Ashley Young, Phil Jones and David de Gea - I have brought to the club.
"At this moment, I can't see another addition. The type of player we might have been looking for is not available.
"I am happy with the players I have got at this moment in time."
Ferguson also revealed that Javier Hernandez, who has finally made his eagerly-awaited appearance on tour following a triumphant Gold Cup campaign with Mexico, is unlikely to be involved in Wednesday night's encounter with the MLS All-Stars at Red Bull Arena.
Hernandez only began training on Monday and the United boss does not want to push him too hard.
"He has had a month's holiday, which he needed after the Gold Cup," said Ferguson.
"It was a long season and he played in the World Cup as well, so he has not had a lot of rest in the last year.
"The most important thing for us is to give him some proper training before we even consider him for the first team."
Hernandez's arrival has been welcomed by fans, who on United's three stops so far have been disappointed by the Mexican's absence.
It is a reflection of the impact he has made since joining United 12 months ago, although he insists his life has not changed despite the obvious adulation.
"I feel the same," he said.
"I am playing for the best team in the world. The only thing that has changed in the last 12 months is that I have played a lot of games.
"All I have done is try to improve. That is the only thing on my mind.
"This whole move has been a dream come true for me.
"The key has probably been my boss and my team-mates. It means a lot to me to be part of Manchester United. All the extra things are just that, extra things.
"To be part of this team is wonderful."
