Manchester United boss: Signings might not happen

David Moyes has said that Manchester United may not sign any player before the transfer window cloes, according to ESPN.

In what may come as a shock to the United fans, Moyes has accepted the possibility that there may not be any addition to the United squad.

“There is a need to do it, but there is no pressure to do it,” he said. “I have an idea of where I'd like to strengthen. If the right players are available, then great - but there is a possibility nothing may happen. 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."

Moyes failed to sign either of Thiago Alcantara or Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, and saw his £28m bid for Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines rejected.

The only new additions to the squad have been Wilfried Zaha, who completed a £15m from Crystal Palace under the watch of Sir Alex Ferguson, and Uruguayan youngster Guillermo Varela.

United have been linked with Juan Mata and Luka Modric, but no substantial moves from United's side have been completed.

Moyes added: “The plan is we bring in one or two if we can. I think there is [value for money available] 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 remains determined to keep Wayne Rooney, and has reiterated again that the striker is nowhere close to leaving the club, even though Jose Mourinho is expected to lodge a final bid after Monday's clash at Old Trafford.

"We've told you, haven't we [that Rooney is not for sale]?" he said. "I hardly need to repeat it again. It doesn't need to be said."

United may return with an increased bid for the Everton duo, which may well be their final attempt this window.
