David Moyes is willing to spend over £70m in the next nine days on bringing his chosen targets to Manchester United with the manager chasing a host of players on the back of his bid for Juan Mata.

Yohan Cabaye is believed to be a top target for the United manager and the Mirror claims that while Newcastle are reluctant to sell he is willing to bid £20m in the hopes of tempting Mike Ashley into letting one of the north eastern side's most influential midfielders go.

The Toon held firm when Arsenal came in with an offer for Cabaye in the summer, offering £12m for the Frenchman, but Alan Pardew insisted that the bid would have to be a lot more than that for the club to consider selling.

Cabaye pushed hard for a move and took some time to settle into the fold at Newcastle after the summer transfer window closed, leaving a lingering hint that he would once again be open to the possibility of a move to a club challenging in the Champions League.

Moyes is currently believed to have made a bid for Mata worth around £40m, hoping that the out-of-favour Chelsea man will be available to seriously bolster United's squad. If Cabaye makes the move as well it would certainly give the manager more options in the middle of the park as he looks to take the Red Devils back into contention for Champions League football.

These deals along with a pursuit of Patrick Herrman – though the Borussia Monchengladbach winger has said he doesn't want to leave his current club this month – and a bid for Bayern Munich's Dante will take Moyes' spending to a possible amount of £70m or more if he is willing to up his current valuations.

With just days to go before the window comes to a close United will be desperate to get in some new faces but at a typically difficult time to buy top players it could be a scramble come deadline day for the former Everton manager.
