Ferdinand: We don't need new additions

Rio Ferdinand is adamant Manchester United have the strongest squad in the Premier League, despite Manchester City's continued spending in the transfer window.

Having completed the signing of Edin Dzeko for a fee in the region of £27 million already this month, City boss Roberto Mancini is still exploring ways he can add to his options at Eastlands.

But while his opposite number at Old Trafford, Sir Alex Ferguson, has been quiet so far this January, Ferdinand has no doubts United are still the team to beat, and is unconcerned by the activity of the club's local rivals.

"I look around the changing room and I'm happy with the players we've got," Ferdinand said. "I'm sure the manager is too.

"If he sees fit to add to it, I stand by whatever decision he makes. But I don't see a problem with the depth of our squad. When everyone's fit, we've got the best in the league.

"In midfield we've got Carrick, Fletcher, Scholes, Anderson, Giggs, Park, Nani, Valencia, Hargreaves. That's an abundance of talent and people say 'You've not got depth in the squad'. But try and pick a foursome out of that - it's difficult."

Despite being included on Ferdinand's list, the future of Owen Hargreaves is looking increasingly bleak.

The luckless midfielder, who has spent most of the past two-and-a-half years on the sidelines appears set to miss out on a place in United's Champions League squad when it is announced on February 1.

And the England international, whose last comeback was branded a "disaster" by Ferguson after it lasted all of five minutes against Wolves in November, is even thought to be at risk of missing out on a pay-as-you-play deal when his contract - which has cost United around £4 million-a-year - expires this summer.
