David Moyes this afternoon sat down for his first pre-match press conference as Manchester United set-up to face Singha All Star XI in Bangkok.
Moyes has admitted that he is happy with the search so far for new talent to bring into Manchester United over the summer, but admits that he has never stated the Thiago Alcatara was a target.
Speaking in Bangkok today he said:
“We’re on with targets that we are chasing at this moment in time, there are people we are actively chasing and, at this moment in time, we’re happy with how things are going.”
When asked about Thiago Alcatara still being a target, he said:
“I never said at any time that he was.”
Moyes was quick to brush off any questions about the future of Wayne Rooney.
On Friday Jose Mourinho was very open in stating his admiration for Wayne Rooney, in which Moyes responded:
“People are entitled to talk about good players, i’m sure Jose has been asked about lots of players as well. I’ll keep repeating myself: Wayne is a Manchester United player and he’ll remain that.”
