Moyes' Manchester United transfer plans well underway - Lineker

Match of the Day host believes at this stage of the season, Manchester United must have made some important decisions.

Manchester United boss David Moyes is a man under pressure, but the Red Devils appear to be sticking by him.

With under 10 games left of the Premier League season, and United struggling badly, Moyes will no doubt be losing sleep on a daily basis working out how to put things right.

An integral part of that will be the summer transfer window, and should Moyes be fired; there is an argument it could set back the club's plan to rebuild.

A new boss, like Moyes last summer, would want time to look at the existing players at the club - those who remain anyway, and could labour over buying players just like the Scotsman did a year ago.

It would also mean the existing plans Moyes is putting in place, via extensive scouting and networking, could be ripped up and have to start again.

Those who paid attention to his transfer policy last summer may argue that isn't a bad thing, spending a month chasing down a dead end in Cesc Fabregas and settling for Marouane Fellaini instead.

But the addition of Juan Mata was a solid buy in January, and while his best position has not been established at the club yet - clearly at present the club are a work in progress, and Moyes' vision will only become apparent after this summer.

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker feels this is the case; and argues sacking the boss now would be a mistake, not giving him the chance to put right the wrongs of this woeful campaign. He stated on Twitter:

All then left, will be for Moyes to keep everybody guessing and speculating as to who exactly is top of his list of priorities and start making his moves...
