Man United chief rules out signing Scholes replacement

Sir Alex Ferguson has reiterated that he is not in the market for a new midfielder following Paul Scholes's retirement. Manchester United have already spent heavily this summer on the likes of Ashley Young and David de Gea, but they were still being linked with a new midfield star to replace Scholes. Luka Modric and Samir Nasri had been linked, but it was widely reported that Inter Milan's Wesley Sneijder was the man he wanted. It had even been claimed that a deal was close despite Ferguson's previous protestations that he was not in for the Dutchman. But now following their latest pre-season win over Chicago Fire, Ferguson insisted that any midfield question would be answered from within the current squad. "We are always looking for good quality players," said Ferguson. "We started the season with the players we have and I am satisfied with that. "We are not looking at the moment but we are looking at combinations of central midfielders now at the club."
