Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has only been given a transfer fund of £100 million to strengthen his side this season.
According to the latest reports from the ESPN, the Norwegian has only been afforded a £100m transfer war-chest amidst reports that the Manchester Club is looking to spend over £200m on summer re-building.
There’s a view within the club that if United are able to retain the services of Paul Pogba and David de Gea, while signing an able replacement for the outgoing Romelu Lukaku, Solskjaer’s men are good enough to make a top 4 finish.
Manchester United have recently offered contract extension to Ashley Young, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Juan Mata and have made it their priority to tie down de Gea on a new 5 year contract amidst PSG links.
There has been a massive shift in the transfer strategy of the Red Devils in the last few months after the Club revealed their intention to sign young and upcoming homegrown talents ahead of the big name signings.
The recent transfer of a relatively unknown quantity in Daniel James, while the continuous links to Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Sean Longstaff and Declan Rice amongst other, only confirms that projection.
However, the reports goes on to say that if Manchester United are unable to hold on to the likes of Paul Pogba and David de Gea in the summer, Ole would be provided with sufficient funds to sign a replacement for the outgoing superstars.
Manchester United players are due to report back for preseason training on July 1, and Ole Gunnar Solskajer would be expecting to wrap up a couple of signings (especially a centre-back and a midfielder) before the first week of July.
Do you think £100 million of funds should be enough for our summer re-build and a top 4 finish?
