After taking over at Manchester United, David Moyes has been linked with moves for the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Thiago Alcantara. The club also made an official offer for Everton defender Leighton Baines as well.
Despite winning the league last season, it is maintained that United are not have the strongest squad in the Premier league. Hence, they are expected to spend money and strengthen it over the summer. Moyes has said that he definitely has money to spend in order to make United as the best team in the world.
However, he has confirmed that he has no bottomless pit and intends to work within the budget over the next few weeks in order to strengthen the team. He also has to cope with the loss of a few players as well. Rooney has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford, which could force United into the market for a striker. They had been linked with the likes of Radamel Falcao and Robert Lewandowski, but it appears that the destination of both these players lies elsewhere. Falcao has moved to French club Monaco, while Lewandowski is close to a move to Bayern Munich.
Moyes started his regime with a defeat in the friendly match, but he is not worried about it.
“Isn’t it great that the club says, ‘There’s no budget here, you go get who you want to get, just go and do it’. We are looking at the best players. I do think it’s important that we show people we are carrying on the traditions and trying to take the club forward. I will not name anybody, but certainly we are always looking at the best players. I think we are trying to strengthen in a couple of areas. We are short in midfield,” said Moyes.
