David Moyes has confirmed that he has every intention of bringing in new players to Manchester United in January if he can land the targets he wants to.
United’s squad is in real need of strengthening especially in midfield and our weakness has been exploited which has left us in ninth position in the Premier League table.
Although January is a notoriously difficult window for any major signings because it is halfway through the season, Moyes clearly wants to buy some players so long as they are the long term prospects he wants them to be.
“The bigger picture is that I want players going forward, not just for the next six months,” Moyes said.
“I’m looking to see if I can get someone who will be with us for the next six or seven years.
“Could we get it all done in January? I am not saying that is the answer but I’d like to see what I can do.
“It’s not easy buying in January but I want to bring them in now or as soon as I can. A lot of them may be at clubs that could be in the Champions League or clubs that aren’t willing to sell because they’re in good league positions.”
United enjoyed a fantastic January transfer window back in 2006 when the club signed Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra who both went on to become staples at the club for the next seven years, something Moyes is clearly keen to emulate.
It’s good to see that Moyes knows the time to strengthen is now and is happy to talk about it to the press. Marouane Fellaini‘s arrival was the first midfielder we signed since Owen Hargreaves but by the looks of it, we will be getting at least one more in the not so distant future.
