Moyes welcomes Mourinho mind games

David Moyes has no worries about engaging in a mind games battle with Jose Mourinho.

It has seemed the Chelsea boss has been trying to get under Moyes' skin over the last few days, particularly with his comments about Wayne Rooney.

Moyes has not been drawn in. But he does find the prospect quite intriguing.

And, answering a question from a fellow Scot in the aftermath of Manchester United's 5-1 win over the A League All Stars in Sydney on Saturday, Moyes showed no sign of being overwhelmed by Mourinho's approach.

"It sounds like your accent's like mine and if you're from Glasgow then you enjoy those sorts of things, so bring it on," said Moyes.

It is a sign the intense former Everton boss is feeling more comfortable in his new surroundings.

His first major signing continues to prove elusive though, with Moyes admitting there had been no developments on attempts to bring in reinforcements, even though executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward returned home three days early on "urgent transfer business".

"I've not had any more news since we last spoke yesterday," said Moyes.

"I have no more updates so I couldn't give you anything positive or negative."

Robin van Persie would like to see Cesc Fabregas come to United though.
