Manchester United set for £50m January transfer boost

Published Add your comment

Manchester United could be set to spend big in the new year, with early reports suggesting that the Premier League champions are set to make a substantial sum available for manager David Moyes to lavish on new signings.

Former Everton boss Moyes has endured a somewhat difficult beginning to life in the Old Trafford dugout, with a fairly underwhelming opening to the 2013/14 domestic campaign proceeded by a series of disappointments in the summer transfer market.

Although the Scot was clearly well-intentioned in his efforts to secure a first marquee signing to assert his status in the aftermath of the great Sir Alex Ferguson's reign, Moyes' summer became fraught with repeated frustration as he missed out on a number of high-profile targets.

However, Moyes could well banish those aforementioned frustrations for good this winter after the club posted record financial figures for the last quarter.

And, according to reports in The Metro, such an impressive overall financial performance is set to have positive ramifications for the playing squad.

The publication suggests that, while the exact amount that may be made available to Moyes remains slightly unclear, that it could be approximately £50 million.

In addition, it appears as if Moyes will also receive 100 per cent of any money raised by the sale of players.
