Manchester United have given £50million to their new manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign two centre-backs when the transfer windows opens in January.

Solskjaer was appointed on Wednesday as Manchester United's caretaker manager until the end of the season following Jose Mourinho's sack.

Mourinho's reign at Old Trafford ended with a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool which left United 19 points behind Jurgen Klopp's side and 11 points off fourth-placed, Chelsea on the Premier League table.

According to The Daily Mirror, the Red Devils have made signing a new centre-back as one of their top priorities in January.

Meanwhile, Napoli confirmed yesterday that Mourinho made £95million bid for centre-back, Kalidou Koulibaly before he was sacked by Manchester United.

Solskjaer will hope to lead United to victory when they tackle Cardiff City this weekend in the Premier League.
