Manchester United fans knew they would be in for a difficult period of transition following the departure of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
However nobody knew it was going to be this hard as David Moyes faces a massive struggle to turn his side into one capable of challenging for the Premier League again.
Now Mirror Football declare that the Glazers are ready to back Moyes in the January transfer market with major funding, believed to be as high as a figure of £50 million.
The former Everton boss claimed last week that he has inherited a team short of world class players and that has seen the Glazers open their cheque book for the under pressure manager as they look to bring the club back to the top.
After their third defeat in just six Premier League matches, there are major concerns that if this form continues, the Red Devils won’t just be left lagging in the race for the title but could face a massive challenge to reach the Champions League spots come the end of 2013/14.
The summer transfer window at Old Trafford has been regarded as something of a disaster with just Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini arriving at the club on deadline day despite a host of high profile names being linked with the club on a seemingly daily basis.
The Belgian’s team-mate Leighton Baines remained at Goodison Park despite strong interest from Moyes and Atletico Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera stayed in Spain due to United’s reluctance to pay his £30 million release clause.
Both are thought to be still on the radar for Moyes in January while Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala is believed to have become a target as Moyes looks to significantly strengthen his team.
Will £50 million be enough to save Manchester United’s season? Let us know your thoughts below.
