David Moyes Targets 4 New Signings – See Who He Wants Here
Man Utd manager David Moyes wants to bring in four players this summer with Leighton Baines, Kevin Strootman, Ezequiel Garay and Thiago Alcantara his targets.
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.
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.
