Moyes hints at transfer agreements following Manchester United's Champions League elimination

The Scot says his focus is to rebuild the squad and qualify for the Champions League next season, and suggested that players have already said they will move to Old Trafford
Manchester United manager David Moyes has hinted that agreements are already in place to bring new players to Old Trafford.

Moyes denied his job was on the line after the Red Devils were knocked out the Champions League by Bayern Munich, and suggested he already knows that players will want to join the club even without top-level European football.

"That's not a question for me because my job is to get on and do the job," he told Sky Sports. "My focus is to get a side which gets us back into the Champions League and that's the objective.

"The club have never had any problem [about the Champions League], they've always been looking to spend the right money on the right players if they are available, it had nothing to do with Champions League football, and any players we've quietly dicussed with are more than happy to join Manchester United.

"As I say, I think there are ones who have quietly... somebody might have had a word in their ear, they've all been keen to come here because [the European hiatus] will be a short thing, not a long thing, and they're all very keen to join such a great club."

United took the lead at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night through a Patrice Evra thunderbolt, but conceded just 22 seconds later and eventually lost the match 3-1, 4-2 on aggregate.

With the club currently seventh in the Premier League table it looks unlikely they will qualify for the Champions League next season, but Moyes is confident that he can rebuild his squad and make a comeback in 2015-16.

"We've not got Champions League football, that's the way it looks," he added. "I believe that it's not far away, hopefully it'll be one year where we go to rebuild.

"Our focus now is getting a team which can make sure we are back in this competition, because it's a great competition, we've really enjoyed it, there's no shame in going out in the quarter-finals to Bayern Munich, because they are a good side.

"The players have played really well, it shows the quality of the players we've got. We'll regroup and we'll start building towards being in the competition again."
