David Moyes admits he is hoping Manchester United can do a “little bit of business” before the summer transfer window shuts next week.

The Red Devils have only signed Uruguayan youngster Guillermo Varela despite targeting big-name players like Thiago Alcântara and former Arsenal captain Cesc Fàbregas.

The Premier League champions have also failed to prise Everton duo Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini away from Goodison Park despite offering £28m almost a fortnight ago.

“I don’t know how busy it’s going to be but it’s a busy football market,” said Moyes.

“It might be busy in the next few days and I hope we do a little bit of business but I couldn’t guarantee that.”

Moyes handed Chelsea target Wayne Rooney his first Premier League start in a goalless draw with the Blues at Old Trafford on Monday night.

Following the stalemate, Jose Mourinho appeared to concede defeat in his bid to snap up the England striker, and Moyes reiterated the club’s summer-long stance that Rooney isn’t for sale.

Moyes added: “We told you and everybody else from day one [our stance], so I don’t think there’s anything else to add today.”
