MANCHESTER UNITED could be braced for a January spending spree as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to guide the club into the top four.
Back-to-back wins against Tottenham and Manchester City have moved the Red Devils up to fifth in the table – just two points behind Chelsea.
A host of players have been linked with a switch to Old Trafford, with the club believed to be in the market for a defender, midfielder, winger and a striker.
Though they face competition with Spurs, with Jose Mourinho maintaining an interest in the Senegal international.
United have also been linked with swoops for Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland as well as Atletico Madrid ace Saul Niguez.
And Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho could also be drafted in after reports claimed the Bundesliga outfit are ready to sell the England international in January.
As Solskjaer looks to build on his side’s momentum, he could be backed in the transfer market to continue his overhaul of the squad.
