MANCHESTER UNITED manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will reportedly be handed £274million to work with in next season's transfer window.

The sensational claim was made by football finance experts Soccerex, who in their latest report suggest United have an unprecedented amount of cash for the summer sales.

Solskjaer has spent £220m in the two windows he has had as Old Trafford boss - spending more money than any other manager during that time period.

The United boss has signed Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James, Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo during his reign.

But the spending will not stop there.

United are still battling Chelsea for the signing of Jadon Sancho, who is set to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer.

But SunSport revealed Old Trafford chiefs are also planning a £160m swoop to snap up England pair Jack Grealish AND James Maddison.

Ighalo will return to China and Shanghai Shenhua after his Old Trafford loan expires at the end of the season.

And Solskjaer is also in the market for a striker to provide competition for Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Frenchman Moussa Dembele is linked with United, and Lyon admitted if any of their players wish to leave, they can - for the right price.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas said: "We already have a certain number of offers for our players for summer.

“We sell the players who want to leave to where they want to go."
