United had been heavily linked with the Spain Under-21 star, Thiago Alcantara, who seemed destined for the Red Devils after determining that leaving the Nou Camp was in the best interests of furthering his crusade for a World Cup place. As reorted yesterday Thiago's former boss Pep Guardiola intervened, with the player now looking odds on to join Bayern Munich.
Despite the set back, Moyes remains resolute in his squad-building strategy.
"I never said at any time he was," said Moyes, when queried about Alcantara. "There are people we are actively chasing and we are happy with the way things are going."
It does appear Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay has agreed to join United though, with reports claiming a transfer is imminent (aren't we tired of hearing that line!) although there has been nothing official from either club.
While Moyes assures that Transfer dealings are proceeding according to plan, he also has his first match to focus on, against Singha All Stars. We all await developments on the recruitment aspect with baited breath to see if the 'White Elephant' in the room is being addressed - i.e. midfield!
