Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has had a flying start to his career at Manchester United following their 5-1 thrashing of Cardiff City on the weekend. The massive win has brought with it a fresh ray of hope in the hearts of the United faithful who are now confident of exciting times that lie ahead.
As we inch closer to January, United's name in the papers is also becoming more and more frequent, given their links to a number of players.
On that note, let's have a look at the top stories concerning Manchester United today.
#1 United lay down conditions for Solksjaer's transfer needs
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer only recently confirmed that he will 'have a say' in Manchester United's transfer plans for January this season. The board has agreed to back him in the market when the transfer window flings open next open, but they will do so only if the Norweigan tactician fulfills either one of their two conditions.
The United hierarchy has agreed to lend their full support to Solksjaer in the transfer market, if and only if he sells players or decides to buy free agents. The club seems to be saving cash by spending as moderately as possible, given their hunt for a new full-time manager next season.
The Red Devils will be looking to rope in a world class defender to add steel to their shaky defense - a requirement that tops their list of priorities in January. It remains to be seen how Solksjaer plans to get his wishes fulfilled as the transfer window opens next month.
