United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has reiterated that he does not plan to spend massive amounts of cash on new players in the January transfer window.
The Scot maintains value for money is difficult to find in the winter market, when the short time available to deal means clubs demand ridiculous prices for players.
United have been linked with a swoop for versatile Everton youngster Jack Rodwell, with prices as high as £20 million being quoted in some reports.
But Ferguson insists that he has no intention to spend big.
"I'm in the same position as I was in the summer," said Ferguson, according to skysports.com.
"There are a lot of players out there, all valued by their current clubs at £50million. Given the prices being asked, I just do not see the value."
