Moyes wants ‘scouting system shake-up’

David Moyes is set to shake-up his scouting system following criticism in the aftermath of the summer transfer window closing, the Mirror understands.

The recently appointed manager brought in just one major signing this summer, after securing a deal for Belgium international Marouane Fellaini, though he missed out on a number of other targets.

Leighton Baines, Cesc Fabregas and Ander Herrara were some of the names strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford over the last few weeks, though the club were unable to finalise any of those deals.

It is thought that the club will not be going down the ‘director of football’ route, but will instead look for more scouts.

Meanwhile, Nani has said that David Moyes convinced him to sign a new contract with the club, according to Sky Sports.

The Portugal international, whose previous deal was set to expire at the end of this season, had been strongly linked with a move away from Manchester this summer with Arsenal, Roma, Juventus, Monaco and Paris Saint Germain all said to be interested in securing his services.

However, David Moyes made the decision to offer the 26 year old a new, five year deal at Old Trafford.
