Glazers refusing to splash cash in January irrelevant of who is Man Utd manager

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won't be able to buy his way out of trouble in January as it's reported the Glazer family doesn't want to spend any more money this season.

Solskjaer faces a make-or-break period over the next month or so as he tries to get United's campaign back on track.

Recent defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City left the Norwegian hanging by a thread at Old Trafford, and while the axe hasn't been swung yet, reports suggest that United are in the market for a new manager.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has recently emerged as the frontrunner for the job, while PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino continues to be linked, but no matter who's in charge in January the Mirror claim they won't have much to spend – if anything at all.

United's American owners feel as though the squad is strong enough to challenge for both the Premier League and the Champions League already after spending big on the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane in the summer.

Sancho has struggled for form and Varane has barely been fit, and while Ronaldo's return has brought goals, it's also presented the side with a myriad of tactical problems.

Will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still be in charge of Man United by the end of the season? Let us know what you think in the comments section below…

Solskjaer has now spent more than £400m since taking over from Jose Mourinho in 2019, and there's understandable disappointment in the United boardroom over how far his team have fallen behind the likes of Chelsea, City and Liverpool.

Rumours have been swirling for weeks about the 48-year-old's future, and while he remains in the job for now, there appears to be a growing feeling in and around the club that Solskjaer isn't the man to take them forward long-term.
