Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be given £50m to spend on signings in January after taking over at Manchester United until the end of the season, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils are looking to strengthen their squad and that the interim boss will have a budget to bring in new players next year.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is ready to make the budget available next year if the right players become available, according to the same article.

The same report says that both Toby Alderweireld and Douglas Costa remain as two of the main targets for the Red Devils as they look to try and bolster their squad.

The story also claims that signing players at centre-half and right midfield is the Red Devils’ priority in the new year.

Solskjaer was confirmed as Manchester United’s interim manager on Wednesday after the Red Devils opted to sack Jose Mourinho on Tuesday, with the club languishing in sixth place in the Premier League table and 19 points behind leaders Liverpool FC.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a number of players next month as they look to try and strengthen their squad and boost their chances of breaking back into the top four before the season is out.
