Man United can expect "best players in the world" to arrive

Manchester United new boy Juan Mata has claimed that his club remains capable of attracting the biggest names in football, despite their on going battle to achieve a Champions League spot for next year.

According to the Express the Spaniard, who was signed by David Moyes only last month for a club-record £37.1million, is confident that his new side remain a powerful force in the modern game and will be able to bring in the best players in the world should they target them in the summer.

Despite the fact that Moyes’ only transfer success story is the one which involves himself, Mata was quick to defend United’s credentials in the transfer market, suggesting that they still remain a lucrative option for the world’s most reputable footballers.

"I don't know what will happen in the summer but the manager said the other day at a press conference that he's going to be signing players," Mata said.

"I think this club is at a stage of change, but I can tell you that the best players in the world will always arrive."

It’s unlikely that the fans share the 25-year-old’s optimism given their recent record in the window. The Red Devils missed out on the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara last summer, whilst they were unable to secure the signatures of a number of targets in January.

Heading towards the end of the season Moyes has been linked with a big money move for PSG star Edinson Cavani. Whether or not they land the Uruguayan will likely either support or completely rubbish Mata’s claims.
