David Moyes Targets 4 New Signings – See Who He Wants Here

By on July 2, 2013

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, David Moyes’ summer targets are revealed.

Leighton-Baines

New Manchester United manager David Moyes wants to bring in four new players this summer with Leighton Baines, Kevin Strootman, Ezequiel Garay and Thiago Alcantara his key targets, according to the Mirror.

Moyes officially started work as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor on Monday as he set about trying to build upon the Scots incredible success at Old Trafford over the last 26 years.

United won the league in comfortable fashion last season so you’d be forgiven for thinking Moyes might be happy with the squad he’s inherited. However, the Mirror suggest the former Everton boss has set his sights on bringing in four new players this summer as well as trying to persuade Wayne Rooney to remain at United next season.

Rooney’s future has been filling the back pages ever since former boss Sir Alex revealed the striker had asked to leave the club towards the end of last season, which has left Moyes with a delicate problem to resolve. Talks with the player and his agent are expected to take place this week when the 27-year-old’s future should become a lot clearer.

As well as holding clear-the-air talks with Rooney, top of Moyes’ agenda is strengthening his squad and the Mirror claim he want’s to raid his former club for left-back Baines, with reports suggesting the champions have returned with an improved £16m bid after seeing an opening £12m offer rejected by the Toffees.

With Paul Scholes retired and doubts continuing over the long-term fitness of Darren Fletcher, it seems central midfielder is also an area Moyes wants to add to with the newspaper claiming that PSV’s Strootman and Barcelona’s Alcantara are the men on his wish-list, while a £17m deal to bring centre-back Garay in from Benfica is also believed to be close to completion.

There’s little doubt that if Moyes can add that quartet to his squad this summer United will be a stronger unit heading into next season, and given the fact they won the league by 11 points last year, that’s a frightening prospect for the rest of the Premier League.

    Moyes should bring in three players without allowing any player to leave. persuading Rooney and Evra to remain at old Trafford will truly balance the squad with youth and experience. Evra is better than Bainse.

    Man U – let Rooney go if he wishes to. Evict Fletcher, Nani, Anderson,Evra, Valencia, Chicarito and Ferdinand. Bring in Bale, Ronaldo, Thiago, Garay, Baines,Lewandowski and watch Man U on fire.

    All of these 4 players will make us stronger …we don’t need Rooney as he is not in good shape like before and we got VAN PERSIE HERNANDEZ AND WELBECK…and KAGAWA…
    For sure thiago and strootman is the most

    If man utd should sign the four players, i think it will be better for us. Pls new sir Alex (Moyes) persuade Rooney and Evra to stay thanks.

    Rooney should go and make signing of Thiago Garay strootman Baine with Ronaldo or Bale and if he can’t get cr7 or Bale he should try to get Reus.

    Why he should nt sale Luis Nani and Chicharito bcs 2 of them are very good even i prefered chicharito than lewandoski, chicharito is a sharp striker a player that can score at any time chicharito is unstopable striker a kind of striker that can furstrate defenders and Nani is kind of player that we also need in man utd although he have poor performance last season but that does not mean any i steel have believe in Nani, he even better than one way, calamity Valencial but Sir Farguson did not give Nani enough chance to play like he did for calamity Valencial. Please Moyes Keep Nani and chicharito and make use of them, i believe in them they can do it again.

    My own probz now is dat vidic and evra may liv d club…pls new sir fergie(moyes) pls and pls dnt allow dat 2 occur pls.then signing of thiago and strooman is gud coz we really need atleast 2 new paul scholes….i dnt see any reason of utd targeting defenders,our defenders is vry OK… We only need midfieders..bt baines and garay is gud bt dats nt why vidic and evra should liv d club….we can stil get d benfican and evertian @ utd and stil keep vidic and evra…

    I wnt moyes 2 keep rooney nd go 4 garay,baines nd thiago.if possible lewaldoski should be added 2 d striking room of united nd someone like valencia,anderson should be sell out

  17. Hammed Musa

    July 3, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    Moyes try to get Thiago and strootman first bt i don’t think we need any defenders at this moment especially Garay because we have enough defenders include Jonny evans phill jones, vidic, ferdinand, evra, buttner, Rafeal, Fabio, but he can make signing of Baines to strenght the left back line.

  18. nanee ernest

    July 3, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    i want rooney nd evra in man utd while welcumin the above 4 wt ovation 2 old traford the lik of valencia should b send out. Lng live man utd!

  19. Jamo

    July 3, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    I think we should bring in strootman and thiago for midfield. We dont need a new striker cuz hopefully rooney will stay, then we will have RVP , Chicarito and Welbeck, aswell as W Keane and Henriquez as back up.
    also I would keep nani because both he and zaha can use both feet.Buy Garay as cover for Rio. Keep Jones as a RB for another year.
    So Moyes
    Buy: Strootman, Thiago, Garay and Munain from Athletic Bilbao
    Sell: Young, Anderson, Fabio/Buttner

    Moyes has made the riegtful decission to alow rooney to remain @ man unitrd and bringing in those 4 new players tiago,stroonman.bainse and garay it wil make utd more stronger because next season na war so we hv 2 prepair pls try and add 1 striker

  21. Tabingwa peter

    July 3, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    Moyes u re welcome in man utd, but i think you sud keep Rooney & Evra around. Buying of Baines is not necesary bse you Evra, Fabio & Burtner but sud you atleast strengthen the midfield with the likes of Thiago, Strootman, Reus& Fellaini. Defender Garay. Anderson sud go.

  22. Pikolo

    July 3, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    Pls moye’s bring in alcantara,strootman nd Gara nd leave rooney, luis nani nd evra at d club nd sell valancia or u convert him in any wing long liv man united i luv man u red devil til i die

  23. Ochayi edwin itodo

    July 3, 2013 at 6:15 pm

  25. Fil

    July 4, 2013 at 5:54 am

    At all costs include Bale if u fail to get Ronaldo.It’s a MUST.We still need one strong and quality defender to cover up for Vidic and Ferdinand.We are usually caught off guard on counter attacks as most of the time we are slow at the back and midfield.

  26. John maisori

    July 4, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    I think moyes should bring in strootman,baines thiago and hopefully Cristiano inorder to defend the title next season.
