Manchester United unveiled their three summer signings for the new season. The coach Sir Alex Ferguson reiterated his policy of mixing youth with experience, saying it was the right philosophy for the old Trafford club.

Defender Chris Smalling has signed from Fulham, Mexican international striker Javier Hernadez has been acquired from Guadalajara and Tiago Manuel Dias Correia - known as Bebe - has now passed his medical and joins the Reds from Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes. All three are aged between 20 and 22 and Ferguson hopes that his bright new prospects will learn from some of the older hands at United.

Sir Alex Ferguson said, "Well, I think it's one of our policies - it's one of the important policies at the club, that we identify young players who can grow into the club and develop and, you know, we've always worked in age's factor. We have several players in their thirties now, a few in their mid-twenties to late twenties, and the rest are all young players who are improving players all the time, So I feel it's the right policy for Manchester United. We are good at producing our own young players and also good at developing young players. And three young players sitting here today are part of that plan for the future."
