Moyes wont be forced to buy
David Moyes has insisted that he won’t be forced into buying this transfer window, despite a growing injury list, as he expects most of the clubs business to be completed in the summer.
Amongst other key players, United’s talisman Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie were both injured for Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Swansea in the FA Cup third round. Despite there being continual paper talk of a mass exodus of incomings and outgoings at Old Trafford, Moyes has now cooled speculation that there could be a rampant pursuit of new signings.
“It won’t change how we go about things. January is not an easy month to purchase in.
“We have a good, big squad that is getting stretched at the moment because of the number of games. But everybody picks up injuries at this time of year. We are no different and will use the squad.”
“I think most of the business will be more towards the summer rather than January.”
With the club slipping to seventh in the league, fans were expecting to see a new arrival this window, with a creative midfielder seemingly the necessity.
Given the last transfer window, where it appeared Moyes lacked the backing for key targets, do we think this is a case of the club not panicking or the board not willing to spend?
