Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has convinced Ed Woodward to spend over £200m: report

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly convinced executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to spend over £200m as the club gears up for a summer overhaul.

One of Jose Mourinho‘s causes of demise was his inability to persuade the club to spend big on a centre-back last summer.

Though the Portuguese was sufficiently supported in earlier summers with big name signings such as Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and even Alexis Sanchez, his last summer didn’t quite go to plan.

Fred was the big name signing with the only other transfers being low-key in Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant.

Solskjaer though has managed to overcome that stumbling block though he’ll be weary he isn’t sufficiently backed further down in his career.

According to the Evening Standard, Woodward has been so impressed with his employee’s proposed transfer strategy that he’s willing to spend over £200m even before a technical director is even employed.

With those kind of numbers floating around, Ole will surely be able to build a side in his image though he will also need more time.

However, fans are weary of believing Ed’s big talk as they’ve previously been let down.

The executive vice-chairman has also had a habit of overbuying and underselling the players coming or leaving the club.
