Juan Mata remains confident Manchester United will sign "top quality players" in the summer.

The Spain international arrived at Old Trafford for a club-record transfer fee of £37.1 from Chelsea earlier this year. The playmaker is aware of United's torrid season, where they are likely to miss the Champions League next year.

David Moyes's side sit seventh in the league table with 57 points from 33 games. With five games in hand, United are 10 points behind fourth place Arsenal., who have played one game more than the Red Devils.

The former Everton manager earlier admitted that the players he has held conversation are keen on joining him at Old Trafford. Moyes is also hopeful pf completing signings before the World Cup kickstarts in June.

The United board are set to hand Moyes a £200m transfer kitty in order to overhaul the squad. Mata believes the club is still in a position to attract world class players.

"I have no doubt about it. When I joined, in all my conversations with the board and the manager about next season, they were confident about getting the right players," Mata told the Mirror.

"They know, and I know, we're in a transitional moment, but in the summer they're going to try to sign a few players and I have the faith they are going to bring top players in. I'm sure this club is going to come back and fight for every trophy."

"Since I was a kid, Manchester United was fighting for everything, and this moment is going to come back for sure."

"When I was in my situation at Chelsea, not playing, everyone I spoke with in football said, 'Yeah, maybe Manchester United aren't at their best this season - but it's still Manchester United!'."

"It's not a team that's just played one season in the Champions League and you're going to a club that's not top level. No, this will always be a top level club, one of the biggest in the world."

"So if you don't play Champions League one season, you'll play in it the next year, or you will still win trophies, because it's what the club is about," the Spaniard concluded.
