Manchester United are reportedly planning to hand manager Jose Mourinho a significant January war chest in order to improve his squad.
Mourinho was frustrated by the club's lack of investment during the summer - particularly in defensive areas - and reports have suggested that the board were once again reluctant to splash the cash in January due to concerns over the manager's long-term future.
However, The Mirror claims that United do plan to back Mourinho when the transfer window reopens, despite seeing the club's value fall by more than £300m.
The Red Devils' latest financial results show that the club's share price has fallen to its lowest level since 2013, plunging to £14.21 per share this week compared to the July high of £21.45.
Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is understood to have ensured investors that the club still have the financial muscle to spend big in the transfer market, though.
