Man Utd don’t need Cesc Fabregas, says David Moyes
Manchester United manager David Moyes says the club can have a successful season even if Cesc Fabregas doesn’t join them.
The Scot is still desperate to bring the Barcelona midfielder to Old Trafford. But with the Catalan club playing hardball, Moyes has changed the narrative slightly to point out that United’s hopes for next season are not pinned on signing the former Arsenal captain.
Asked if he was still hopeful of signing Fabregas, Moyes said: “We hope we will do, but what we’ve got here already is a really good squad of players. You must not forget the quality that is already here at Manchester United.
“But undoubtedly, we’re hoping to add to it, and I’m confident we will do before the window shuts.”
Moyes went onto explain that, having won the title so convincingly last term, the current squad would still be challenging for the league even if no more signings are made this summer.
He continued: “Well, that’s the squad that finished fifteen points clear at the top of the Premier League and yeah, I’m confident with that squad, what I’ve seen.
“We’ve got a great squad of players, obviously we will get a few more, some I haven’t even met yet since I’ve been on the job and I’ll meet them when I get back next week. Unfortunately, we picked up an injury to Wayne (Rooney). But I’m looking forward to getting back and getting around it again.
“I think the squad Manchester United got, without any additions, will be tough opponents for any team this year.”
