Luis Filipe Scolari and Sir Alex Ferguson have both claimed today that their respective clubs (Chelsea and Manchester United) will not be bringing in any new faces this January. Man United today announced the £16 million double signing of Zoran Tosic and Adem Ljajic, however Fergie has today admitted the club won't be doing any more business this month.
Scolari also confirmed that his club, Chelsea, would not be spending anything in the transfer window. He claims he doesn't need any more players because he already has enough in his squad at the moment. The former Brazilian manager did admit that players may be leaving Stamford Bridge for what he called "big money" and that has already happened.
Wayne Bridge has left the club to join Manchester City for a fee of around £12 million, however he is unlikely to be the only departure this month. Personally, I feel if Chelsea are to challenge for top honours on both the domestic and European scene, they need to bring one or two new players to the club. In United's case, I think they are a little bit short in defence and I wouldn't be surprised to see Ferguson go against his words a bring a new defender to Old Trafford in the coming weeks.
