David Moyes introduced himself to Manchester United’s backroom staff on Monday.

He met with Sir Alex Ferguson and David Gill as well as the United squad as part of an unofficial introduction.

He attended the League Managers' Association awards in London with Ferguson on Monday and does not officially take over as Manchester United manger until July 1.

Ferguson announced his retirement in May and handpicked Everton boss Moyes as the ideal candidate to succeed him.

The main focus of Moyes speaking to staff at Old Trafford was to give clarity on their future before they go away on holiday.

It has been reported that Moyes' first-team coach at Everton Jimmy Lumsden may join him at United.

The Scot was given permission to visit United’s training ground by Everton.

Moyes is currently under contract to the Toffees until the end of June but may leave a week early to go on a break before he starts his new role.

He will then take United on the pre-season tour to Thailand, Australia, Japan and Hong Kong in July, before taking charge of his first professional league game against Wigan Athletic in the Community Shield on August 11.
