The next transfer window will be a monumental one for David Moyes. His first as Manchester United boss, the Scot’s decisions during the initial months of his tenure will not only signal his intent for the coming Premier League season and vision for future campaigns, but furthermore present him the opportunity to step out of Sir Alex Ferguson’s shadow and make his own path at Old Trafford.
There’s no doubt the new recruits will be coming in, the most likely names so far being his former Everton talismen Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini.
