Manchester United are reportedly prepared to hand Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a transfer budget of £250m in a bid to turn the club into Premier League title challengers.

Manchester United are reportedly ready to back manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the transfer market.

While the Norwegian has frequently found himself under scrutiny at Old Trafford, back-to-back victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City have moved United into contention for a top-four spot in the Premier League table.

Ahead of the next transfer window, United have been heavily linked with a bid for Red Bull Salzburg forward Erling Braut Haaland, while Saul Niguez and Jadon Sancho are also said to be priority targets.

According to The Sun, Solskjaer will be provided with £250m in order to seal the signings of the trio, either in January or during the summer.

Solskjaer may also be able to boost his funds by selling a number of experienced players, including the likes of Paul Pogba who has already expressed a desire to take on a new challenge.
