Manchester United have told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that the club can spend £75million in January, according to reports.
The Red Devils outlay during the summer transfer window was just under £150million with Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James coming through the door at Old Trafford.
Alexis Sanchez is another one that could leave before the European transfer window shuts on September 2, with Inter reportedly set to seal a deal, which would improve United’s wage budget.
The report adds that Solskjaer ‘still keen on recruiting a creative midfielder’ and will ‘assess the situation’ once the window reopens in the winter.
A ‘United source’ told The Sun: “The money is certainly there and Ole knows that.
“Everyone knows January is always a difficult market but if it’s the difference between keeping United in the top-four mix, the owners won’t hesitate to back the manager.”
