David Moyes believes the current squad at Manchester United is strong enough to remain competitive in the Premier League, Sky
Moyes has thus far been frustrated in his attempts to sign former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, having had a number of offers for the Spain international rejected, while strong links with Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines, his former Everton charges, have come to naught.
The Scot has also had to deal with speculation regarding the future of Wayne Rooney, who is said to want to leave the club this summer, while Paul Scholes has also retired from football for a second time. Moyes as yet has not completed the signing of a single first team player.
But he feels that United were so strong last season – and topped the league table by such a distance – that even if the club does not make an addition before the close of the transfer window, they will still be in an encouraging position. “This is the squad that finished 11 points clear at the top of the league last season so I am confident in the squad,” Moyes said.
“But even without additions this squad will be tough opponents for any team – they will be looking at Manchester United,” the former Everton boss added. “We know we will be challenged by everybody, every game we play.”
