Manchester United Red Sox manager Alex 'Purple nose'Ferguson says that the race for the Premiership will be a four way race next season.
United ran away with the Premiership last season, finishing 21 points ahead of Arsenal, but the Scot is no fool, and can obviously see that Arsenal will be there or there abouts next season.
United have done the most strengthening this summer with Owen Hargreavs arriving along with starlets Nani and Anderson, a total of around £50Million spending. Carlos Tevez also seems United-bound for a further £30Million.
Arsenal have also added to their squad, although not to the extent United have. Sagana, Fabianksi and Eduardo Da Silva have all arrived at The Grove this summer, although it would seem that only the latter will be first choice next season.
Speaking to Sky Sports Fergie said: 'There is no gap between the top four teams.
'We are happy with the signings we have made and we have a great chance but there is no complacency in terms of the challenge we will face from other clubs.
'Liverpool have bought five players, Arsenal have two or three and while Chelsea have only actually bought one, they have added a few others.
'It just tells you what a great desire there is amongst us all to win the Premier League.'
And to think Tottenhams fans believed Mourinho when he said they'll be title competitors next season. The term 'clutching at straws' springs to mind.
