Ole Gunnar Solskajer is to go on a huge 200 million pound spending spree in the January transfer window.

There are reports emerging from the Mirror, that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has picked two players he wants in January.

Apparently United money men have the checkbooks at the ready and are going to launch bids to sign them both.

The cost of these two additions, somewhere in the region of 200 million pounds.

His two targets are no surprise to anyone really.

He is aiming for Borussia Dortmund’s English winger Jadon Sancho.

The former Manchester City cast-off has had a terrific run in the Bundesliga and is determined to return to the Premier League and prove himself.

Sancho who will cost around 100 million pounds has seen his relationship with Dortmund sour of late.

He has been the subject of some rather public disciplinary action and humiliation from manager Lucien Favre.

His other target is Norwegian compatriot Erling Braut Haaland.

Even if you lived on Mars, you will know all about the teenage goal scoring phenomenon that he is.

He is eager to prove himself at the top, and his club RB Salzburg will love to cash in, to the tune of a 95 million pound profit.

United lack goals and general quality in the attacking third.

Having spent a net figure of around 60 million this summer, money is not a problem.
