Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told Manchester United will only be allowed to sign players on-loan in January, according to reports.
The Mirror suggest United will look to stockpile transfer funds in the winter window so that any new manager would have more money to spend next summer.
As such Solskjaer will reportedly be restricted to loan signings next month as he looks to bolster his squad and mount a challenge for the Champions League.
According to the report the Norwegian manager was informed prior to accepting the caretaker role that any transfer business would be restricted during his spell at the club.
Speaking last week the United manager insisted he will have ‘input’ in any business the club make in January and that the club already have a list of targets identified.
In terms of other transfer news, Juventus have reportedly lined up a move to sign Paul Pogba in the January transfer window.
Italian publication Tuttosport suggest the Italian champions are looking to recruit Pogba and Isco next month as they look to bolster their chances of winning the Champions League.
Juventus are understood to be confident on a move for the French World Cup winner as long, however the decision to sack Jose Mourinho could scupper their hopes.
Pogba cut a frustrated figure under the guidance of the Portuguese coach but is looking to revitalise his Old Trafford career under Solskjaer.
