Why Man Utd could be given extra £15m to spend this summer

Manchester United are readying themselves for a huge summer under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following a lacklustre end to the season.

The club’s initial upturn in form under the Norwegian tailed off massively and their defeat to Cardiff City on the final day of the Premier League was their fifth defeat in ten games.

Solskjaer is aware of the summer of upheaval that needs to occur if United are to improve on this season’s disappointing showing.

The United boss has funds readily available and could be about to receive an extra £15m, report the Daily Mail.

That could comes courtesy of Wilfred Zaha’s impending departure from Selhurst Park.

The 26-year-old has expressed a desire to leave Crystal Palace after nine years at the club across two separate spells.

A failed move to Old Trafford was sandwiched in between two stints with Palace and the Eagles signed him back for £6m in 2014.

But the Red Devils included a sell-on clause that stated they wold receive 20 per cent of any fee.

United’s financial gain comes as:

A move for £100m superstar collapses over concerns at the club’s set-up

– Juventus star Paulo Dybala is seeking a move away following issues with Cristiano Ronaldo

A ‘promise’ is made by Solskjaer to the club’s fans

Palace are demanding £80m for the prized asset with Borussia Dortmund previously touted as a destination for the Ivorian.

That cash would enhance United’s spending power this summer with the club set to experience a range of issues.

David De Gea’s contract situation continues to hang over the club as he enters the final year of his current deal.

The Spaniard wants parity with the club’s top earners or will consider a move elsewhere with PSG tracking the situation.

United’s current high earner is flop Alexis Sanchez who joined from Arsenal in January 2018.

The Chilean has managed to score just five times in 45 outings for the Red Devils and his £500,000-a-week wages are an issue.

Solskjaer also knows a quality centre-half, if not two, are a must this summer while the future of Paul Pogba remains an unresolved issue.
