Manchester United remain confident Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the man for the job and will continue to support him in the transfer market, reports claim.
Solskjaer has found himself under real pressure following a disastrous run of form since becoming the club’s permanent manager, having excelled while in interim charge of his former team.

A lowly two wins from their first eight Premier League games this season sees United down in the bottom half of the table, and some reports suggest Solskjaer could be axed if the Red Devils falter to a negative result against Norwich later this month.
But The Telegraph say this is not the case, with the United hierarchy continuing to back Solskjaer with the view of him overseeing a three-year plan to restore the club to their former heights.
This backing involves Solskjaer bringing EIGHT new players to Old Trafford across the next two summer transfer windows to finish building his new-look United side.

Defenders Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and winger Daniel James, were signed by the Red Devils prior to the start of this season, but club chiefs know more purchases must be completed to ensure United challenge for major honours again.
It is likely four signings will be made next summer with a further four following a year later, and United have been linked with the likes of Ben Chilwell and James Maddison, the Leicester pair, as well as Napoli defender Kalidou Kouliably and Moussa Dembele, the Lyons forward.
