Man United giving new boss David Moyes money to spend

The Manchester United Board seem prepared to back boss David Moyes and the Old Trafford outfit look set to up their £12 million bid for Leighton Baines. The Everton left back has been Moyes' top target since he left Everton for Old Trafford last month.

With Wayne Rooney set to move to Arsenal according to current indications from the Emirates, Moyes will have plenty of cash to splash. Moyes has also been tracking Borussia Dortmund's  Robert Lewandowski but the club have insisted the Polish international will not be sold this summer. Not to Man United, Chelsea or Bayern Munich. Not to anyone.

Lewandowski has a year to run on his contract and there has been much speculation about his future with the 24-year-old at one stage thought to be on the verge of a move to Bayern.

However, Dortmund ruled out a move for Lewandowski to their fiercest rivals.

That led to suggestions that teams in England, including Manchester United, would have a good chance of securing his services.

However, Dortund's general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke says Lewandowski will not be leaving the Westphalia this summer.

"Robert will definitely be playing for Borussia Dortmund next season," he told Germany's Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper.

"We need this security to be able to plan (for the season)."

United are also said to be interested in former star, Christiano Ronaldo now with Real Madrid. The Independent reported 10 days ago that United had made Ronaldo's camp aware that if the player sees out his contract in Spain he will be paid a signing-on fee in the region of €50m (£42m) as part of a lucrative package to take him back to the club which made him.

New Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has however said he wants Ronaldo to see out the final year of his contact with the Spanish side.

It will be an interesting couple of months as Moyes looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the transfer deadline. One thing looks certain - he won't be denied the cash to do it.
