Manchester United are allegedly prepared to hand their next permanent boss a transfer budget of £200m.

The Daily Mail quote that Manchester United CEO Ed Woodward has been very impressed with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since appointing him on a short-term deal until the end of the season. The report further claims that Woodward visited Solskjaer last week to tell him what a good job he was doing.
