Manchester: Manchester United say there is sufficient cash in the kitty to allow new manager David Moyes to chase a "stellar player" before the new season, British media on Sunday quoted chief executive Ed Woodward as saying.

According to Woodward, the English Premier League champions are "absolutely" able to compete for players in the £60million-£70million (90-105 million dollars) bracket.

"We haven't got money burning a hole in our pocket but we have got a strategy on player purchases and if David wants to go after a stellar player he can do that," Woodward said, his comments featured in several national newspapers.
