Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be backed financially this winter
The summer transfer window has only ended fairly recently but plans are already being made for January, perhaps escalated by the club’s poor start.
United initially defeated Chelsea 4-0 on opening day but have since failed to pick up a win.
It appears executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has recognised the need to invest further and rather than wait until next summer, he could do so this winter.
Of course there’s already been talk of the possibility of losing Paul Pogba in January and so that would certainly spell disaster for the club.
If it happens and they weren’t planning on investing in the midfield then they definitely would have to do it then.
Pogba is Manchester United’s only world-class midfielder and fans saw just how their starting XI looks like without him in the side during the early parts of pre-season.
