Man Utd boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still retains the support of the club’s hierarchy and has reportedly held a series of meetings to discuss plans for the upcoming transfer window.
The Norwegian is under mounting pressure after the Red Devils worst start in the English top-tie after eight games, winning just two and sitting only two points above from the relegation zone.
Next up, the Red Devils take on league leaders Liverpool – who have a 100% win record so far this campaign – and there have been suggestions that defeat to the bitter rivals could cost his job to the Norwegian manager.
However, The Times report that the Red Devils, head-coach’s job is safe even if they suffer a heavy defeat against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
In fact, The Red Devils chiefs have already held a series of meetings with Solskjaer to discuss signing four the next year and they are ready to splash money to add four players to their squad.
The club are sympathetic to the 20-times English champions struggles in front of goal and knew that an injury to eitherMarcus Rasfhord or Anthony Martial would be hugely testing after allowing Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku to sign for Inter Milan.
Nevertheless, they have backed Solskjaer’s decision to get rid of the attacking pair.
Replacements had been sought in the summer, though the Red Devils were unwilling to compromise on targets purely to fill out the team and have a clear idea of the type of players they are planning to sign.
Solskjaer focused in on hungry, British youngster and the club are happy with the three arrivals made in the most recent window – Aaron Wan-Bisaka, Harry Maguire and Daniel James, and intend to follow a similar blueprint in upcoming transfer window in January.
United legend Gary Neville has previously reported that the Red Devil need five new players, saying on Sky Sports:
‘They need a couple of midfielders, a striker to carry the frontline, a wide player and a left back. ‘
“They know what they want and the fans know that. But they have to be of the right type. It could take 18 months to find the players you want.’
