The Independent notes: Moyes has hinted that he may be forced to pursue other targets, with the additional problem of the uncertainty over Wayne Rooney’s future.
“I never said I knew we would get him [Fabregas],” said Moyes when asked about Fabregas as his side prepare to face FC Kitchee in Hong Kong today.
“I just said we had made offers. They have been rejected. We will take stock of the situation and decide where we go from there.”
Asked if he was concerned at not having signed anyone by now, Moyes said: “No, not necessarily. We hoped we would, but what we’ve got here already is a really good squad of players. Undoubtedly, we’re hoping to add to it, and I’m confident we will do before the window shuts.”
United are in danger of being left red-faced this Summer with our public chasing of Fabregas and should we fail to sign anyone question marks may be raised over Moyes’ methods before the season even begins. Let’s just hope the new boss doesn’t sign someone just for the sake of it, as it’s vital United get players who can elevate the squad rather than just increase its number.
