Massive! Manchester United apparently hand Moyes £150m transfer budget

By on January 18, 2014

David Moyes is set to be handed a massive £150m transfer budget, according to the Daily Star.

Moyes’ Manchester United tenure has been marred by concerns that the Reds will not qualify for next season’s Champions League. The financial implications of that failure would be significant. The United boss was informed of his spending power during a meeting with chief executive Ed Woodward and other Manchester United directors.

Moyes announced earlier in the week: “The amount of big players wanting to join Manchester United is incredible. Maybe players want to go to other clubs for the money but if you ask them where they really want to be, what club they really want to wear the badge of, they want to wear the badge of Manchester United. It’s because of the club and what it stands for in world terms.”

Read on to find out which world stars could end up at United….

Julian Draxler, who has a £37m buy-out clause in his contract, has been linked with a move to Arsenal. But is tipped for a possible move to Manchester United.

Southampton’s Luke Shaw has been linked with a move to Manchester City in recent months, but the Saints have suggested a fee of £30m. With Clichy and Kolarov ahead of Shaw, if he joined the Etihad side, a move to United seems more likely. Patrice Evra has been rumoured to be on his way back to France at the end of the season. Shaw could be his replacement.

Edinson Cavani, PSG’s second-biggest star forward, is linked with a move to Manchester United. Remarkable, if true. The Daily Star report that Cavani is eyeing a move to the Premier League – he only joined PSG last summer from Napoli for £55m.

It is rumoured he is not impressed with Ligue 1 and wants to be a star in the Premier League – a la Luis Suarez at Liverpool.

No chance.

With Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie lacking match fitness, it appears that David Moyes may be forced into a January transfer move. The former Everton manager has indicated that world-class stars are always keen to move to Old Trafford & with Manchester United suffering their worst Premier League start (after 22 matches) it may be sooner rather than later that Moyes improves the squad.

Juan Mata has been linked with a high-profile move to Manchester United, as well, but Mourinho will almost certainly ensure that does not happen. Moyes has told Chelsea that United would not sell to a direct rival & one would expect the Blues to maintain a similar transfer policy. United have also shown interest in Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke, but that deal seems unlikely after he signed a new contract which established his minimum fee release clause at €50m.

With the pressures of stocks, commercial sponsorship, and an international fan-base that demands results, United’s Champions League qualification is an absolute minimum, but far from certain. Tough start for Moyes.
