Solskjaer to be given £150m transfer kitty

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will reportedly be given £150m to spend on new signings during the next transfer window.

The Red Devils have experienced a difficult 2019/2020 campaign and they find themselves in the fifth position in the Premier League at present.

According to Metro, Solskjaer is set to be backed with a sizeable transfer kitty for the summer despite the season being disrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

United spent around £48m to lure Bruno Fernandes from Sporting in January but that is not expected to have any effect on the transfer budget for the summer.

The board are prepared to provide around £150m for new purchases and Solskjaer may have to recoup any additional funds from the sale of unwanted players.

Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho remains the prime target for the Red Devils ahead of next season. He is likely to cost in excess of £100m amid interest from several elite clubs including Chelsea and Liverpool.
