Manchester United manager David Moyes has insisted that the club are ready to spend some big money after failing to secure several targets during the summer,


Sky Sports is reporting.

The champions pursued several players over the summer including Leighton Baines, Cesc Fabregas, Thiago Alcantara and Ander Herrera, but only succeeded in making one signing, that of Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini.


Man Utd have since gone on to struggle in the Premier League in the defence of their title, losing five of their 15 matches. Ahead of Sunday’s trip to Aston Villa, they currently lie in ninth place, 13 points behind leaders Arsenal, and on a four-game winless streak.


Moyes has revealed the club were close to making a major signing in the summer, believed to be Gareth Bale, who ended up joining Real Madrid for a world record transfer fee. He said: "The club have the money and they will spend, there's no question about that. We were very close to a major, major signing back in the summer.


‘It's easy now saying it and we didn't do it but we were really close to a major signing and the club would have definitely shown what they're worth."


The Scot also went on to insist that money was not a factor in their lack of success in the transfer market over the summer, adding: "It wasn't for money, that's for sure. The players had chosen other clubs or made their decisions elsewhere. The bigger picture is I want players going forward, not just for the next six months. I'm looking to see if I can get someone who will be with us for the next six or seven years."
