David Moyes has vowed to compete with Manchester City's spending this summer ahead of the Premier League clash on Wednesday night.

Manchester City will travel to Old Trafford knowing that a victory would add further doubt to Moyes' ability to manage the champions as well as add misery to the already miserable Old Trafford crowd.

But ahead of the game, Moyes has given Manchester United reasons to be optimistic. He claims the Red Devils will go pound for pound in the transfer market with their noisy neighbours this summer.

"This club has got a spending power too," said Moyes on Monday night.

"City have got that. But I’ve not been told at any time that we don’t have that and I do think that the club will compete [with City]."

The rallying claim comes after reports that Manchester United are set to execute an overhaul of the squad at Old Trafford. Not only are a number of established stars set to be shoved out the exit door, but new ones will arrive.

Suffering humiliating defeats to rivals Liverpool and Manchester City already this season, questions over a power shift in the north-west of England are being asked. But Moyes will use the summer transfer market to re-establish Manchester United as a Premier League title challenger.

Manchester City travel to Manchester United on Wednesday night knowing a loss will seriously dampen their chances of winning the Premier League. Stopping their local rivals from doing so will be a slight consolation for Manchester United, who have failed to defend their title with any credibility this season.
