This summer, Manchester United fans have had to sit by helplessly and watch the Blue half of the city do all the spending.
So far, City have signed four players, Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic, for a combined fee of £90 million.
Meanwhile, the only piece of transfer business new United manager David Moyes has completed so far is the acquisition of Uruguayan full-back Guillermo Varela, who’s probably going out on loan.
It’s not as though Moyes hasn’t tried to strengthen the Premier League champions with new signings this summer, let’s be fair.
The ex-Everton man has seen bids for left-back Leighton Baines and midfielder Cesc Fabregas rejected in recent weeks, while others targets, such as youngsters James Rodriguez and Thiago Alcantara, opted to ply their trade elsewhere.
Ever since City’s takeover in 2008 by the Abu Dhabi United Group, bankrolled by Sheikh Mansour, being outspent in transfer windows by their rivals has been the norm for United fans.
Yet there is still a feeling as though the Red Devils are being left behind by their enemies.
While City have strengthened in key areas this summer, United are yet to address their deficiencies, which could prove vital in the title race.
Here, we take a look at 5 Players David Moyes Needs To Sign To Keep Up With City.
