Manchester United's owners will back David Moyes with a £200 million warchest this year. The Daily Mail says the Glazer family will bankroll the new signings needed to strengthen the team over the next 18 months.

United were prepared to outbid Real Madrid with a £90million offer for Gareth Bale in the summer and also tried to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back from the Bernabeu. There was surprise that Moyes only spent £27.5m on Marouane Fellaini.

His list of targets now includes two central midfielders, a striker, a left back and a centre back. The United boss is unwilling to compromise on quality again and is likely to wait until the summer to get players he wants.

The majority, like prime target Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund, will cost more than £30m.
