Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unsure how much he’ll have to spend this summer after failing to agree on a transfer budget with the club’s board.

The Norwegian was appointed on a three-year deal last week after resurrecting the club’s top four hopes following Jose Mourinho’s departure in December.

United are keen to hire a technical director to assist their recruitment process, which has been heavily criticised in recent years as executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has handed almost sole responsiblity of signings to David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Mourinho.

Solskjaer will work under a similar structure, albeit with the eventual addition of a technial director and he has already identified the four areas of his squad that he wants to strengthen this summer.

However, after a sensational unbeaten run in his first three months, United’s top four hopes have taken a dent in the last fortnight with defeats against Arsenal and Wolves.

Qualifying for the Champions League would boost Solskjaer’s budget by around £60m and with such uncertainty over the club’s position the Norwegian was unable to finalise a budget during discussions with the club last month, Metro.co.uk understands.

A failure to qualify for the Champions League would make it even harder to attract the likes of Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford, as well as pushing the club into the undesirable Europa League.

United will, of course, back Solskjaer significantly whether the club qualify for the Champions League or not but it’s far from the only issue hanging over the Norwegian.
