Manchester United manager David Moyes has admitted that the club may not sign anybody this summer after the ex-Everton manager has failed on signing two FC Barcelona players and two Everton player.
Moyes, who took over from Sir Alex Ferguson this year, has tried to sign both Thiago Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas from the Spanish champions, but one of them chose Bayern Munich and the other chose to stay in Spain.
Not only that, Moyes has also missed out on signing two of his former players, Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini after he saw his £28million bid for both, rejected by his former club.
Speaking ahead of United’s crunch-tie with Chelsea on Monday night, Moyes admitted that there is a chance of no signings taking place at Old Trafford.
Moyes said: ‘There is a possibility we wont sign anyone. We have targeted certain quality players so we will see’
‘There is a need for me to sign players. But there’s no pressure. If the right players are available then great. If not then we will encourage our own young players.’
This will be the first time Moyes has faced a top-four team as United boss and he has admitted that he is delighted to be apart of it.
‘I have come here for this kind of game, this level. And im here to win trophies. If you want to win trophies you have to beat teams like Chelsea and Manchester City.
‘I’m pleased to see Jose back. He is one of the new modern eras of manager. Hes had great success. I haven’t seem him for a while.
‘Chelsea have started strong. They have good players and a good team. There hasn’t been much change.
‘Do they know what to expect from us? That’s the question.’
