Manchester United manager David Moyes insists he is not ‘globe-trotting’ in order to sign players in the January transfer window.
Moyes has been seen at matches involving both Juventus and Paris St Germain of late, but he says that does not mean he is there to make any offers to particular players to join his club.
In fact, Moyes says that while United are searching for new talent to join the Red Devils, he may not sign anyone in the January transfer window and may only wait till the start of next season to bring in new players.
“We are looking really hard,” said Moyes.
“As I have said many times, it is not a particularly good month to buy players.
“I would hate to get people's hopes up and end up with nobody. In the same breath we are certainly not sitting back and doing nothing, that's for sure.
“If we could pick up one or two players in this window we said we would try and do it.
“I can see it is a big task and a big job to get things the way I want it.
“Everybody recognises we have to make some changes. But that is not the reason for me globe-trotting all the time.
“I have always been an avid football watcher. I have always enjoyed going to games.
“When you are at a club like this, attention gets drawn to the fact you are there, then people make assumptions that you must be watching one player or another.
“But you don't always sign a player when you go to a game. In fact, you probably go to very few and do that.
“Maybe we are looking for the summer, not for now. The point is when you are at Manchester United you are in the spotlight wherever you go.”
United are next in action in the English Premier league on Sunday against Chelsea where they will look to improve on their current seventh place standing.
