Manchester United manager David Moyes says that while he is looking to strengthen his squad this summer, he won’t be pressured into buying just for the sake of it, according to Sky Sports.

The Scot has only recently taken over from Sir Alex Ferguson, who retired from management at the end of last season, and there have been question marks over whether he can maintain the level of success at United without signing some big names.

The likes of Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara have both rejected moves to Old Trafford this summer, and Moyes continues to be frustrated in his attempts so sign a midfielder, with his old club Everton rejecting several offers for Belgian international Marouane Fellaini.

United could still have options in Real Madrid pair Mesut Ozil and Luka Modric, but Moyes says his transfer list is not a big one, as there are only a certain standard of players good enough to play for the club.

And he added that while he has been doing everything he can do sign players this summer, he does not feel under great pressure to do so.

“There is a need to do it but there’s no pressure to do it,” said Moyes.

“It’s something we’ve been talking about it since I took the job on July 1.

“We don’t have a big, big list because there are only certain quality players we want to bring in to the club.”

Moyes enjoyed an emphatic victory in his first game in charge of the Premier League champions, with an impressive 4-1 win away at Swansea.
