Sir Alex Ferguson has promised that Ruud van Nistelrooy will not be the last new face arriving at Old Trafford this summer.
The Boss is desperate to win the European Cup again before retiring at the end of next season, and says that the club are about to embark on a spending spree that will have their rivals shaking in their boots.
"It's not a case of if but when we sign more new players," Ferguson told The Sun.
"We have to get them or we will go backwards. More and more of my players have said the same. They realise we need fresh blood and top quality.
"When we get the players we want I'm confident of having a squad capable of making a challenge in Europe.
"I only bought in one major player a year ago, while five seniors left.
"So this is a time for rebuilding and that is what I intend."
