David Moyes has revealed that he is already “well into” his transfer plans for the summer as he bids to transform Manchester United back into title contenders next season.

The Red Devils have already been linked with a host of players in recent weeks, including Southampton duo Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw, and Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos.

The Scot is likely to find himself under pressure to bring in significant reinforcements ahead of next season, with United currently seventh in the Premier League table and looking set to miss out on Champions League qualification.

I’m well into my planning with my thoughts and ideas getting ready for next year

And the United boss was quick to reassure fans that his plans for the transfer window are already in motion ahead of Sunday’s clash against Everton at Goodison Park.

“I’ve got to say I’m well into my planning with my thoughts and ideas getting ready for next year,” said Moyes.

“We’re linked with player after player and every time I go to a game, I’m supposed to signing three or four players from that game.

“That isn’t the case, but everyone is well aware we are looking to make signings and will try to do that whenever the opportunity arises.

“It will probably be after the end of the season before anything takes place, but we have got to look to do one or two things.

“It’s difficult as players are going to be going away for the World Cup so it’s maybe not quite as easy as ideally all clubs would like to get the work done early. We cannot guarantee it, but will try to make that happen.”

Meanwhile, Moyes also confirmed that striker Wayne Rooney and midfielder Marouane Fellaini are both fit and available for the trip to Merseyside on Sunday.
