Sir Alex Ferguson is 'comfortable' with his current Manchester United squad and has hinted that he is unlikely to make any more additions.

The Scot has drafted in just two fresh faces this summer, with Chris Smalling completing a switch from Fulham and Mexican striker Javier Hernandez arriving from Chivas Guadalajara.

Both of those additions have been made with one eye on the future, with the duo lacking in top level experience.

That means United continue to be linked with a host of big names, with Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli the latest to be touted as a potential target.

Ferguson, though, claims he is more than happy with those at his disposal and believes there is no need to dip into the market again.

He insists United are not concerned with the exploits of other clubs, including free-spending Manchester City, and intends to keep his focus locked solely on events at Old Trafford.

Ferguson said: "I cannot speak about other clubs. We are comfortable with the squad we have got.

"We bought players at the right time of the season and we are happy with what we have."


Meanwhile, Nani is set to hand United a timely boost on their North American tour by stepping up his return from a dislocated collarbone.

The knock ruled the Portuguese winger out of this summer's World Cup and was expected to keep him sidelined for the majority of pre-season.

However, he is now hoping to be awarded a run-out against Philadelphia Union on Wednesday.

Speaking before a session at the NovaCare Complex, Nani told United's official website: "I just started training with the team three days ago.

"I am feeling good now. I can feel my fitness beginning to build up and I am hoping to play a little bit this week.

"I'm very much enjoying the tour - it's a great opportunity for me to get a good pre-season under my belt ahead of the new campaign."
