United are 11 points outside of the top four and the Norwegian will be given money to spend like the Red Devils attempt to bridge that gap and secure in next transfer window.

The top priority will be given to the centre back position. while the defensive strength of United is very poor in form and not consistent in the game.

These three of them will be more preferable toward the club.

Toby Alderweireld

The Tottenham centre-back has been a long-term target for United. He has refused to sign a new deal with Spurs and can leave the club for nothing next summer.

The north Londoners may decide to cash in on Alderweireld in January, with the Belgian available for around £30m.

Kalidou Koulibaly

The Napoli star has also been on United’s target for months. However, they have been put off by the Serie A side’s £90m valuation – for next month at least.

Napoli would have to lower their asking price and United push them out to make a deal happen.

Eder Militao

Porto’s rising star is another name on the transfer list. The 20-year-old has been a regular game in the season and could be available for around £40million.

However, the young Brazilian may need time to adapt to the English game and could be one for the future rather than an immediate solution to United’s defensive problem.
