David Moyes has revealed the top three transfer targets he wanted last summer at Manchester United.

Moyes admits he wanted Real Madrid pair Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo, along with new Chelsea signing Cesc Fabregas.

"We tried to bring players in during the summer transfer window but they didn’t materialise. It certainly wasn’t for the lack of trying. It wasn’t indecision. The complete opposite," he told the Mail on Sunday.

"It’s been well documented that we wanted Fabregas, Bale and Ronaldo. There was talk of Ronaldo when I first arrived. We were close to getting a couple of major names. I’m not getting in a blame game here but things just didn’t materialise. I had taken over from the most successful manager in history. The chief executive had taken over from one of the most renowned administrators in the game [David Gill]. So it was a new job for two people."
