Manchester United backed for January spending spree

Published Add your comment

Pundit and former footballer Andy Gray believes Manchester United will go on a spending spree in the January transfer window.

David Moyes only managed to sign Marouane Fellaini in the summer transfer window despite bids for Anders Herrera, Thiago Alcantara and a very public pursuit of Cesc Fabregas.

Moyes' failure in the transfer window has been compounded by a poor start to their Premier League title defence. They have so far suffered defeat to Liverpool, West Brom and Manchester City.

They currently sit in eighth place, eight points adrift of leaders Arsenal and Moyes is facing pressure to get the Old Trafford outfit back in contention.

But back-to-back wins against Stoke and Fulham show signs that United are improving for the first time since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

And Premier League expert Gray expects Moyes to kick on in January and sign some big names.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Gray said: “I would expect, if David can, for him to flex his muscles in the transfer window in January.

“It might be difficult to get somebody in who isn’t cup-tied but I think he’ll try and strengthen his squad anyway because he didn’t do that in the summer.”

Manchester United face Real Sociedad in the Champions League tonight with a win bringing them within one point of qualification.
