Manchester United boss planning to strengthen in January

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager David Moyes says he will strive to strengthen his squad during the January transfer period, having failed to do so significantly in the summer months.

The Premier League champions endured a torrid transfer window following Moyes' appointment, with the club missing out on numerous targets including the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Thiago Alcantara and Ander Herrera.

Marouane Fellaini was the only acquisition made by Moyes, with the deal completed moments before the deadline, and the club are now under pressure to bolster next month after their failings in the summer.

The need for reinforcements has grown in importance as the season has progressed with Manchester United some 12 points behind leaders Arsenal in defence of their title, and Moyes says plans are in place to bring new faces to Old Trafford.

"The club has always thought about strengthening," he told reporters on Friday.

"You do that every transfer window. We will try and make that happen."

Manchester United, meanwhile, could slip out of the Premier League's top 10 this weekend if they lost to Newcastle and see other results go against them.
