David Moyes admits he is expecting busy weekend of transfers for Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

David Moyes expects the next few days to be busy for Manchester United in the transfer market with the window closing on Monday.

United have had a €30 million bid for Ander Herrera rejected by Athletic Bilbao so there is certainly movement going on behind closed doors and Moyes remains hopeful of making new signings.

Speaking at this afternoon’s press conference, he said: “It might be busy in the next few days. I hope we do a little bit of business, but I couldn’t guarantee that.”

When questioned directly about United’s bid for Herrera, Moyes remained coy and insisted that the club did not wish to disclose any information on it.

“We would try not to disclose our bids if possible and wish to let the clubs deal with it in a professional manner,” he said.

Moyes also reiterated that United’s stance on Wayne Rooney is still exactly the same as it was back at the start of the transfer window and praised the 27-year-old’s performance against Chelsea.

“We told you and everybody else from day one,” he continued.

“There isn’t anything else to add today. He played well the other night. He looks in good condition and mentally is in good shape.”

The Scot also admitted that he was looking forward to going to Anfield as United manager. He has never come away from Anfield with a victory but he has never gone there as the manager of United, so Sunday could well be the day he breaks his bogey.

“It would be a big win if we can get it,” he added.

“Liverpool are one of the strong teams this season. It’s always been a difficult place to go [Anfield]. I’m looking forward to going back there.”
