Moyes believes his squad is already strong enough to compete

David Moyes has suggested that Manchester United can successfully defend the Premier League title, regardless of whether or not the make any new signings, the Metro understands.

The recently appointed manager is currently mulling over a new bid for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, though the Catalan club have stressed that the former Arsenal captain is not for sale.

However, the Daily Express have reported that a secret meeting between the 26 year olds agent Darren Dein and United chief executive Edward Woodward has taken place has led to a deal potentially being finalised.

The La Liga champions recently appointed Gerard Martino as their new manager, and he isn’t keen to sanction the sale of such a popular player in the early days of his reign.

This means that Fabregas may have to submit a transfer request should he want to make a return to Premier League as reported.

Elsewhere, mega-rich Monaco have been offered the chance to sign Nani, The Sun understands.

The Portugal international has strongly been linked with a move away from Old Trafford after making just a handful of Premier League starts this season, though it remains unclear whether the newly promoted Ligue 1 side will make a move, having already signed former Manchester United target James Rodriguez in his position.
