David Moyes will feel a lot better about things at Manchester United than he did at the start of the week.

It took a big effort for United to get themselves up for the Champions League game against Olympiakos last Wednesday following the drubbing they were handed by Liverpool at Old Trafford last weekend.

Reports suggest that Moyes could be sitting on at least £100 million to spend this summer and we’ve taken a look at five players he may spend it on.

1) Toni Kroos (Bayern Munich)

Kroos has been consistently linked with a move to Old Trafford ever since the first reports came out. Michael Ballack has suggested Kroos is right to delay contract talks at Bayern Munich, which means United have a good chance to tempt him with a strong deal this summer.

2) Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain)

Cavani has periodically come out and said he’s not leaving PSG, but ‘sources’ close to the striker suggest he is aware of interest in him, including links with Manchester United. It would take an almighty effort for Moyes to sign the Uruguayan this summer because he reportedly doesn’t think United are good enough for him anymore.

3) William Carvalho (Sporting Lisbon)

Carvalho has been a target for Manchester United for a significant period of time. They have scouted him frequently and the latest reports suggest they are ready to offer an initial €30 million to sign him this summer. That’s some way short of the €45 million Sporting want.

4) Xherdan Shaqiri (Bayern Munich)

Arjen Robben’s new deal at Bayern means that Shaqiri could move on in the summer to find regular football. United could slot him in down the left hand side of their team, where Moyes has used several different players throughout the season including Adnan Januzaj and Ashley Young.

5) Seamus Coleman (Everton)

Roberto Martinez has denied rumours circulating this week that United have been in talks to sign the right-back. The theory behind going for Coleman is that it would enable Chris Smalling to consolidate as a central defender, helping to cope with the impending loss of Nemanja Vidic.
