Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has insisted that the club have been in a "transitional moment" throughout the current campaign.
United look likely to miss out on qualification for next season's Champions League after a poor performance domestically, but Mata is confident that manager David Moyes will sign several "top players" during the summer.
The 25-year-old told The Mirror: "When I joined, in all my conversations with the board and the manager about next season, they were confident about getting the right players.
"They know, and I know, we're in a transitional moment, but in the summer, they're going to try to sign a few players and I have the faith that they are going to bring top players in."
Mata has scored three times in 11 appearances for United since joining from Chelsea in January.
