Solskjaer handed £250M to transform Man Utd squad

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be handed £250m to spend in 2020.

The Old Trafford transfer kitty could swell to £400m if Paul Pogba leaves for the £150m asking price, says The Sun.

Solskjaer wants established stars who would walk into the first-team — with Jadon Sancho, of Borussia Dortmund, and RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland on his hitlist.

He said: “We are going to strengthen. We are going to get starters into this team — we need to.

"We are one or two players down in numbers.

“But it doesn't have to be this window, it might be the summer window."

Centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, who would cost £80m from Napoli, and £70m midfielder Bruno Fernandes at Sporting Lisbon are some of the others on his hitlist.
