Seems having new owners may help getting new players!

Manchester United chief David Gill has rejected claims rivals City will make a £135m bid for Cristiano Ronaldo under new owners Abu Dhabi United Group.

Sulaiman Al-Fahim, the billionaire businessman at the centre of the Manchester City takeover, has publicly drawn up a list of big-money targets.

But Gill told BBC Radio 5 Live he is treating it "with a pinch of salt". "I can't believe he is serious at those levels and, anyway, we are not looking to sell our best players," he added.

"Ultimately we would discuss any offer with (Manchester United manager) Alex (Ferguson) and the owners, as that sort of money is very large for one person.

I have to say, no matter how good a player is, he is not worth £135 million, and if Utd are offered this amount of money they should take it. Their squad is strong enough to cope without him, and £135 would buy another team.
