Sir Alex Ferguson could be going home to Glasgow for his next signing if the UK's tabloid newspapers are to be believed.
The Sun claims a right-back is United's priority and names Rangers and Scotland defender Alan Hutton as a potential £6m target.
The same newspaper also suggests two players could be leaving Old Trafford when the window opens: "Chinese striker Dong Fangzhuo has not impressed while Wes Brown has refused a new deal."
Other players being linked with United include Reading left-back Nicky Shorey, Lokomotiv Moscow defender Branislav Ivanovic and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov - would Sir Alex really part with Brown, Louis Saha and £6m to buy the Bulgarian?
