Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Manchester United

Manchester United have only made available £100million for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to strengthen his squad this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils have made one signing so far with the acquisition of Daniel James from Swansea City for £15million earlier this month.

Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and David de Gea have all been linked with big-money moves away from United this summer and ESPN sources claim that ‘further investment in the squad hinges’ on their futures.

The £100m that has been made available for spending could be supplemented further but it will ‘be dependent on money raised by player sales.’

ESPN adds that: ‘Solskjaer has been told that his initial rebuilding plans must be financed by the £100m transfer fund’ while using ‘the recruitment of emerging talent.’

There have been reports on Thursday that a £55million deal has been agreed for Aaron Wan-Bissaka to move to United but ESPN contradicts that by saying: ‘Sources have told ESPN FC that moves for [Harry] Maguire and Wan-Bissaka have so far failed to achieve a breakthrough due to United offering substantially less than the valuations of Leicester and Palace respectively.’
