Manchester United manager David Moyes has stated his firm belief that the club is not afraid of big money transfers despite a difficult summer transfer period, reports ESPN.
The 50-year-old Scot has returned to England ahead of his first season at Old Trafford following United’s pre-season tour of Asia and Australia. And, despite Guillermo Varela being his only signing so far, Moyes is not concerned over the club’s ability to compete in the increasingly competitive big money market.
Bids for Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas and Leighton Baines from Moyes’ former club Everton have failed, with Thiago Alacantra choosing to join Bayern Munich instead of the Premier League champions.
Moyes is now reported to have switched his attentions on to former Tottenham and current Real Madrid star Luka Modric as a potential new recruit. And Moyes is insistent the clout of the Manchester United brand is still something which stands them in good stead.
“One thing it has got is the history. It has got the name it has got the success. Players do want to be connected to that and one day say they have played for Manchester United. That is a big pull for any player,” insists Moyes.
“There has been a change in the dynamic because of PSG coming on the scene recently. This has altered things but Manchester United will always compete.”
