Manchester United manager David Moyes has admitted he wants to make 'one or two' signings before the end of the summer transfer window.
Despite losing out on targets such as Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara, Moyes remains confident that he will be able to complete at least one deal before the transfer window slams shut on September 2.
Moyes, speaking ahead of the Red Devils' Monday night encounter with Chelsea, said: "There is a need to do it. But there is no pressure to do it.
"It's something I'd like to do and we've been talking about it probably since I took the job on 1 July.
"But we won't do it because people like you [journalists] tell us we should be signing players."
Moyes, who last week had a double bid for Everton duo Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines rejected, admitted certain areas of the squad are in need of improvement.
"I have an idea of where I need to strengthen and, if the right players are available, then great," added Moyes.
"If not, the first thing we'll do is encourage our own young players in the squad to do as well as they did last year.
"There is a possibility [we won't sign anybody] but the plan is we bring in one or two if we can.
"I think there's value [out there] but we have only targeted certain players and don't have a big, big list. There are only certain quality players we want to bring to the club."
Moyes also reiterated Wayne Rooney would not be leaving the club this summer - despite Chelsea's continued interest in the striker.
