£200m Transfer kitty given to Solskjaer as Man United close in on first signing




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be given a transfer war chest of more than £200M to spend on transfer targets this summer.

The English club expectedly wants to splash the cash after a disappointing league season in which they finished in sixth place.

Europa League beckons on them next season and Ed Woodward, the club’s chief executive is ready to invest massively in transfer targets to avoid a repeat of a poor season.

According to the Evening Standard, they unveiled that Solksjaer who replaced Mourinho in December in the man united dugout wants to strengthen every area of the current squad.

They also emphasized that he will be given the financial backing by United bosses to revamp the squad left by Jose Mourinho and the club’s first signing is reportedly close.

Despite competition from French moneybags  AS Monaco, a deal for Swansea winger, Daniel James is said to be close. The £20M rated youngster is entering the final year of his contract with the Swans.

The Manchester United boss was said to have turned to the 21-year old after conceding defeat in the race to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund while attempting to solve his right-wing problems before the eventual start of the new season.
