No Panic Buys At United

Yesterday’s FA Cup exit of Manchester United was the clubs first ever loss to Swansea and already United’s fifth home defeat at Old Trafford this season.

Despite United's 2014 start with two defeats, club officials have given David Moyes their full support and confirmed the club will not rush into any panic buys.

It is clear that the Red Devils want to add quality players to their current squad, but the availability of top players remains their biggest obstacle.

“We would like to bring people in but are those players available?” Moyes asked after the defeat to Swansea yesterday.

“There is an urgency but there’s no point in me hyping it up because the players we would like to bring in are probably not available in January,” the United boss added.

The club is targeting a left-back and central midfielder and according to Sky Sports News senior figures confirmed that Moyes will receive all financial support he needs to make any moves.

Besides new transfers, Moyes and his board also have to work in their own backyard to decide over the future of Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra, who both have yet to trigger one-year extension clauses and are currently out of contract in summer.

In addition, Nemanja Vidic and Fabio are also free to talk to clubs this month.

But sources at Old Trafford say talks will take place soon and also focus on the extension of Wayne Rooney’s contract at the appropriate time.

United also confirmed that there is “absolutely no panic” about the current situation.

Will Manchester United be able to add quality players in the January transfer window or will David Moyes’ rough transition continue and put the club in danger to miss out on the Champions League spot?
