Sacked Manchester United boss David Moyes was working on deals for FOUR new signings when the decision was made to sack him. The Mirror says Moyes was so unaware that he was about to be fired that he worked on four deals for new players on the day it was made known he was departing.

He thought he was safe and was pressing for an answer from Luke Shaw's camp about a £27million move from Southampton to the Old Trafford giants.

Moyes and his team had been at Southampton's game against Aston Villa on Saturday and were working on persuading the young England left-back to be part of his summer overhaul.

A deal for Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos was also being worked on during Black Monday and Moyes was also looking to sort out the futures of United youngsters Wilfried Zaha and Nick Powell, who are out on loan at Cardiff and Wigan respectively.
