Manchester United stand by their cautious approach to this summer's transfer window.

United brought in David Moyes’s No1 target, Marouane Fellaini, and managed to retain the heavyweight services of Wayne Rooney, who had flirted with a move to Chelsea.

Supporters, though, wanted more.

“This was always going to be a difficult transfer window with a new manager,’’ a United source told the Telegraph, “but the club wouldn’t change anything we did in the transfer window.

"We’ve kept Wayne, our biggest concern. We’ve got a lot of talent in with Fellaini and Guillermo Varela [the Uruguayan full-back]. [Wilfried] Zaha is in the squad and Adnan [Januzaj] has been promoted. No one’s gone out. We’ve got a big squad.”
