Manchester United manager David Moyes fears he could be set for another transfer window of missing out on his top targets, according to the Daily Mail.
United suffered their fifth home defeat of the season at the hands of Swansea yesterday in the FA Cup, and Moyes admitted after the game there is now an ‘urgency’ to recruit new players.
“There is an urgency that we want to sign players but are the ones we want available in January?” Moyes said.
While the United gaffer admitted there were ‘no excuses’ for his team’s poor performance, he stressed the need for top class reinforcements so his side does not need to over rely on Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, who are both currently injured.
“I have said before that I will try to bring players in this month,” he added.
“But it is doubtful because of the way the window works. There is no point me hyping it up, because the ones we want are probably not going to be available. It is that, rather than us not wanting to do it.
“Certainly we shouldn’t be too reliant on Rooney and Van Persie.
“We put out a really strong team, full of internationals and it should have been enough to get us through. There are no excuses. Everyone is getting an opportunity to show what they can do, so I will make decisions from the evidence of that.
“It has been a tough start to the season, a really tough opening period. There is no getting away from that. I am disappointed we haven’t won more and played better but I am sure that will change. What we need is to win.
“We need to find a solution to winning games, no matter how. It doesn’t matter what style.”
