Man United transfers: David Moyes not feeling pressure to spend

Man United transfers: David Moyes insists he doesn't feel under pressure to spend in January despite the club's poor start

David Moyes says he doesn’t feel under pressure to spend big in the January transfer window despite Manchester United’s poor start to the season.

The Red Devils boss failed to significantly strengthen in the summer aside from the hurried £27.5m acquisition of Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini on deadline day.

We’ve got a window in January where if we think it’s right for the club we will do so [sign players]. If not, we will look again in the summer

With United currently seven points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City and a further 13 points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal, Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor is coming under increasing pressure.

But despite a poor start to the campaign, United boss Moyes is adamant that he will only sign players that he deems capable of significantly improving the Red Devils.

“I don’t think I’ll feel under pressure personally to do it as I’ll try to do the right things,” Moyes said.

“I tend to take my time and try to assess what are the best talents to bring in. You can see from the players I brought in at Everton the other night – you would say they were all very good choices.

“We’ve got a window in January where if we think it’s right for the club we will do so [sign players]. If not, we will look again in the summer.

“This club is always looking to bring in the best talent and that won’t change.”
