Manchester United chief Ed Woodward is reportedly willing to back the club's boss, Ole Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, for the transfer window in January. 

Man Utd are expected to spend a whopping price of close to $94 million on new recruits when the transfer window opens next year in January.

Solskjaer is keen to strengthen his attacking options, going into the new year, amidst Man Utd's disappointing Premier League show so far. This season so far, Man Utd have only 13 goals in 11 Premier League matches and only five Man Utd players have managed to put their name on the goalscoring chart. 

Man Utd lost to Bournemouth on Saturday - their fourth loss in 11 league matches - and boss Solskjaer cited the club's failure to sign a striker the reason to their downfall. However, according to Metro.co.uk, Man Utd are adamant of making at least one signing this January and in fact, the club has already agreed terms with an unnamed target.

After selling Romelu Lukaku and loaning Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan during his first summer at Old Trafford, Solskjaer has failed to recover in his attacking department. Man Utd are left with only Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as their key attackers and therefore, The Red Devils have been compelled to use youngster Mason Greenwood in some cup competitions.

During Lukaku's transfer, Solskjaer repeatedly said the Belgian will be allowed to leave the English club only on the basis that Man Utd would sign a replacement soon after. Unfortunately, the former champions have failed to do so. 

In fact, before the Inter Milan transfer happened, Man Utd had struck a swap deal with Juventus that would see Lukaku move to Turin and Paulo Dybala to the U.K, but Man Utd were forced to call off the deal after the Argentine demanded a heavy wage. 

Man Utd were then confident of signing Croatian, Mario Mandzukic before the deal collapsed in the final hours of the transfer window. With Maurizio Sarri having replaced Max Allegri, the Croatian forward decided to stay and fight for his spot in the side.
