According to Manchester Evening News, Manchester United are considering offering transfer funds to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for signing a midfielder in January.
Manchester United signed Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James for a combined £145m fee this summer. However, the Red Devils failed to rope in a midfielder following the departures of Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini.
United were reportedly linked with moves for Sean Longstaff and Bruno Fernandes but either of the moves failed to materialise. They were also linked to Christian Eriksen in the dying embers of the transfer window, However, the Dane was said to prefer a switch to Spain instead of a rival club.
United have also guaranteed space in the squad after the departures of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Chris Smalling and Matteo Darmian.
With James having proved himself in front of the goal, United want to refurbish the underperforming midfield personnel. Solskjaer’s men currently sit in eighth place with 5 points from four games.
