David Moyes has spent much of the season overhauling Manchester United's scouting system.

The Manchester Evening News says it is understood that when he arrived at United, his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson's system and research wasn't as detailed and the key information was allegedly in chief scout Jim Lawlor's head rather than an easily accessible database for the backroom staff.

While the system suited Ferguson, it left Moyes playing catch-up when he officially took over at United last July.

But Moyes has updated United's system and now has instant, thorough access to players.

The Reds want to do their transfer work before the World Cup and will be scouring the Bundesliga and La Liga markets closest.
