Manchester United will back new caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær when the transfer window opens next month.
According to the Daily Mirror, the United board will provide Solskjær with £50m for the right players.
The Red Devils are sixth in the Premier League after 17 matches and are 11 points off from a Champions League spot and 19 points behind league leaders Liverpool.
With the club still competing in the Champions League this season, United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is ready to crack open the war chest and allow Solskjær to reinforce his squad.
It’s reported that the club have prioritised a centre-back and a winger as their top transfer targets. The Mirror suggests that one of the names on the list is Tottenham Hotspur’s Toby Alderweireld, who could cost the club £30m.
Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly has also been named, though Blues chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis has recently revealed that a £95m bid had been rejected by the club.
Éder Militão is also on the Red Devils’ radar, while the club is interested in making a move for Juventus’ Douglas Costa.
Is £50m enough to salvage United’s season?
