Freebies: Raul & Ballack to Man Utd?

Sir Alex Ferguson has entered the race to sign free agent Michael Ballack after the midfielder's release from Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea.

The Manchester United boss plans to offer the injured Germany captain a one-year contract at Old Trafford with an option of a 12-month extension, according to reports.

With reports suggesting United's American owners are over a £1billion in debt, resources could be thin for Ferguson this summer, who may be forced to scour the free market having already spent £7.5million on Mexican recruit Javier Hernandez.

Manchester United also have been linked with a move for Real Madrid striker Raul should he be allowed to leave on a free transfer.

Real president Florentino Perez is believed to be ready to give the 32-year-old a golden handshake to leave the club this summer.

However, while he is admired by Sir Alex Ferguson, sources at Old Trafford believe Raul is too old to make a significant impact on the Premier League.
