Manchester United have given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer permission to sign a new midfielder in January to bolster his squad, reports claim.
The Red Devils have not replaced Marouane Fellaini or Ander Herrera following their recent departures, leaving the club particularly thin in central midfield.
But according to the Manchester Evening News, the club have made funds available for the addition of a big-money signing in the middle of the park.
Manager Solskjaer has prioritised youth over experience at the beginning of the new season, with Scott McTominay emerging as a first-choice midfielder alongside Paul Pobga..

Meanwhile, Andreas Pereira has also forced his way into the first-team, while Nemanja Matic has played for only 22 minutes and £52million man Fred has been left out of all four opening matchday squads.
United have also been linked with a move for Tottenham’s wantaway star Christian Eriksen.
The Dane’s contract expires at the end of the season, and Spurs may be forced to sell in January.
However, it is understood Eriksen would prefer to move to Spain rather than remaining in England were he to leave north London.
