OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER will be handed a staggering £250million next year to rebuild Manchester United.
The Old Trafford boss wants established stars who would walk into the first-team — with Jadon Sancho and 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.”
The Old Trafford transfer kitty could swell to £400m if Paul Pogba leaves for the £150m asking price.
Solskjaer shelled out almost £150m to bring in Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Dan James last summer.
But he has also invested time in youth with budding stars like Mason Greenwood, 17, and Brandon Williams, 19, coming through.
Yet he knows he needs more creative options and at least one more top defender.
Dortmund’s £100m-rated Sancho and RB Salzburg whizkid Erling Haaland, 19, who is priced at £70m, are among Solskjaer’s targets.
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.
Pogba could be back by Christmas after playing only six games this season due to ankle problems.
It is understood Solskjaer and executive vice–chairman Ed Woodward may reconsider their stance over the French star leaving the club.
