The Manchester United board have been forced to consider whether David Moyes is the right man to take charge of an important summer for the club, reports the Sun.

Things went from bad to worse for the new Manchester United manager yesterday as he watched his team succumb to their 11th Premier League defeat of the season - a 2-0 defeat to Moyes' former club Everton.

Naturally, larger sections of Manchester United fans, who have grown so accustomed to success under Sir Alex Ferguson, are calling for Moyes to be sacked ahead of what will be a crucial summer for the club's future.

Officials are set to allow as much as £200m to be spent in the summer transfer window with as many as five world-class signings being placed in a star-studded shortlist.

However, the board at Old Trafford know that if they allow Moyes to spend that money, the risk is huge if he fails to turn it around.

Manchester United have lost more games than ever before in the Premier League and will get their lowest points total in the same era even if they win all of their remaining games.

Although the board were aware this team would struggle with Ferguson, no one comprehended such a downfall for the reigning Premier League champions.

The board will have to decide whether or not they believe Moyes can tun things around if allowed to spend the astronomical sum.

Moyes himself refused to answer questions on whether the Manchester United board would allow him the chance to try and turn it around.

In response, he told reporters: “The supporters have been incredibly behind the team and they realise it has been a difficult season. I recognise it has not been good, it needs to be better.

“Everybody knows we are on track to make changes and do some different things. We are rebuilding, we have got things we want to do.”
