Moyes Not Under Pressure To Sign

Manchester United manager David Moyes admits that he is keen to sign one or two players but is not under any pressure to do so.

United have missed out on a number of reported targets this summer following Moyes' arrival to replace Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Scot has already admitted that he would like to strengthen the midfield, but says that he will rely on the players he has if he is unable to secure one of his targets in this transfer window.

"There is a need to do it," the club's official site quotes Moyes as saying, when asked about adding new faces to squad. "But there is no pressure to do it.

"We've been talking about it since I took the job on 1 July. I have an idea of where I'd like to strengthen and what we need to do. But we won't do it because people like you tell us we should be signing players. We'll do it because we think it's the right thing to do. If the right players are available then great, but, if not, the first thing we'll do is encourage our own young players in the squad to do as well as they did last year.

"There is a possibility (we won't sign anybody) but the plan is we bring in one or two if we can. I think there is (value out there) but we have only targeted certain players and don't have a big, big list. There are only certain quality players we want to bring to the club."
