Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury has urged Manchester United to sack David Moyes and bring back Sir Alex Ferguson.

As reported by Jack Wilson in the Daily Star, when asked whom he would like United to sign before the transfer window shuts, Fury said: "Oh God, where do I start? A new manager? I want rid of him [David Moyes]. He's ****!"

The timing of Fury's comments may come as a shock to Moyes supporters, as the manager appears confident of turning around his tough start at Old Trafford following the record capture of Juan Mata.

Despite United's lowly position in the Premier League table—they sit seventh and 14 points behind leaders Arsenal—the majority of the club's fans remain behind Moyes and back him to turn things around.

Having said that, following the shocking Capital One Cup semifinal defeat against Sunderland on penalties, one distressed fan did call the emergency services to ask for Ferguson to be reinstated at Old Trafford:

Fury also wants Fergie back and says he would like to see United make a move to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic: 

"In a dream world, I'd like Zlatan Ibrahimovic. I'd love him to come to United. I wouldn't mind having Lionel Messi, someone **** like that, too!"

Sweden international Ibrahimovic has never played Premier League football, and at 32 years old, his chances may be decreasing. The calls of Fury for his signature are unlikely to prompt Moyes to make a move.

There is little doubt Ibrahimovic has the talent to grace the Old Trafford turf alongside the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Mata.

Messi, too, would surely just about find a way to squeeze into the United matchday XI if signed by Moyes.

But Fury might have to make his transfer wish list a bit more realistic if he doesn't want to be disappointed.
