CLUB NEWS:

"We are not a club that needs to sell.  We have money in the bank so there is zero pressure on that, no pressure at all to sell any star player whether it is Wayne Rooney or X, Y or Z. I can categorically say that. The philosophy is to retain and attract the best players. We have £165m in the bank but in some ways we would prefer to have £80m in the bank and Ronaldo on the pitch. " - David Gill ( Manchester Evening News | Sky | Guardian | Daily Mail | Telegraph )
