David Moyes will be handed a £200million war chest to spend on rebuilding the Manchester United squad, according to The Daily Mail newspaper.
The British tabloid reports that the Glazer family will bankroll the funds over the next 18 months. The paper adds that Moyes has identified the positions on the pitch where he needs new footballers — two central midfielders, a striker, a left back and a centre back.
With it being The Daily Mail reporting the news, you have to take it with a grain of salt. But there’s no doubt that the Manchester United team need strengthening to rebuild the squad into a more formidable force.
