Manchester United planning January spending spree

Manchester United owners the Glazer family pledge to back David Moyes with significant funds in the January transfer window, according to reports.

Manchester United owners the Glazer family are reportedly ready to back David Moyes with significant investment should he wish to strengthen in the January transfer window.

Moyes has made an underwhelming start to life in charge at Old Trafford, winning just two of his first six Premier League games.

Following last weekend's home defeat to West Bromwich Albion the Glazer family have made it clear to Moyes that there are funds for new players, according to The Guardian.

The Scot endured a frustrating summer in the transfer market, failing with bids for a string of targets including Leighton Baines, Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas and Ander Herrera.

Marouane Fellaini eventually moved from Everton just hours before the transfer window closed, with the Belgian midfielder joining for a fee believed to be in the region of £27.5m.

United are currently preparing for their second match in this season's Champions League, which comes against Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine tomorrow night.
