Moyes endured an ill-fated 10-month spell at Old Trafford as the Scot was dismissed in April for presiding over the club's worst season in the Premier League era.
However, the 51-year-old insists that he is now ready to start afresh, and believes that his short-lived stint with the Red Devils has hardened him to the realities of the job.
"I'm ready to go," the former Everton boss told The Telegraph. "I've no time-scale. I'm enjoying the break but I'm a football man and I want to work. I feel my best years are ahead of me and I do feel I am still a young manager. I've lots to learn and lots I want to put into practice.
"I think I am better-equipped to take over a job like Manchester United now than even when I did take over because I've had a chance to see what happens, what goes on.
"I felt I was ready when I left Everton but obviously when you get in you see things and you realise that experience and knowledge you can only get from being in the job. But unfortunately I only got nine months."
