New Manchester United manager David Moyes is trying to build on the current squad he inherited from Sir Alex Ferguson.

United have been linked with a move for Thiago Alcantara, but Bayern Munich are now favourites to sign the Spaniard after newly-appointed boss Pep Guardiola made it known that Thiago is at the top of his list.

Moyes, during a press conference in Bangkok, said: "There are targets we're chasing at this moment in time. At this moment of time we're happy with how things are going."

When asked if Thiago was still a target he responded: "I never said he was."

Moyes was yet again questioned on the future of Wayne Rooney after Jose Mourhino spoke of his admiration of the striker earlier on Friday.

"People are entitled to talk about good players," he insisted. "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."

Moyes also addressed Rooney's rehabilitation process.  

"We will keep his work up. With a hamstring injury you can do lots of work in the swimming pool and some work in the gym.

"And, when we return from this tour, we still have the game in Stockholm, the Community Shield and Rio (Ferdinand)'s testimonial as well.

"It is really important we get players fit for those games and Wayne should only be out for two or three weeks.

"He was in really good shape, he came back in a good fighting weight."
