United are in negotiations with Everton over a deal for Marouane Fellaini after David Moyes admitted the club were "moving along".
The United boss appears to be growing increasingly desperate to reinforce his midfield after failing to land Cesc Fabregas and, although rumours continue to suggest that a third bid for the Barcelona star is imminent, Moyes is now concentrating on his former Everton colossus.
The clause that allowed Fellaini to leave Goodison Park for a Champions League club should Everton receive a formal offer of £23million expired on August 1, but United are thought to be trying to negotiate the lowest possible fee for the Belgian.
Fellaini would jump at the chance to follow his former Toffees boss to Old Trafford and is said to be after a £100,000-a-week contract.
Moyes, speaking after United's 1-1 draw with AIK on Tuesday, said: "We're moving along, but if you are asking me if anything is close, I can't give you an answer on that.
"I do think we will be bringing players in before the window shuts.
"I'm relaxed. We've got a squad here and it is the same group of players who have won the Premier League.
"They are a good squad and I look forward to going in to the new season with them."
