The report claims that Manchester United are no longer willing to spend in excess of £50 million on a new centre-back.

Old Trafford officials have been delighted with the defensive progress the team has made Solskjaer.

Since the Norwegian manager’s arrival only Liverpool have conceded fewer goals than United.

It is understood that United were willing to spend around £100 million to secure a world class defender.

But the progress made under Solskjaer means that money could be invested in other areas of the team.

The 13-time Premier League champions are now targeting a new right back and central midfielder.

FC Barcelona are planning a £100 million move for Marcus Rashford, claim the Mirror.

However, United are in talks with Rashford over a new contract worth around £150k-per-week.

It is also understood that the 21-year-old has no desire to leave his boyhood club in the summer.
