Man United board will afford under fire boss another lavish spending spree

Decision makers at Manchester United will afford Louis van Gaal another lavish spending spree in the transfer market as they bid to rescue their season, according to the Daily Star.

The 64-year old has been placed under increasing scrutiny in recent months as his Red Devils are without a win in eight games across all competitions.

His ability to take the club forward has been called into question and rumours persist that axed Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho could replace him at the Theatre of Dreams.

However, reports suggest those behind the scenes at the club will give the Dutchman funds to land new players now the transfer market is once again open for business.

The Daily Mirror claims that a new striker remains the priority, as the club have notched just 11 goals in their last 15 games.

Only Wayne Rooney and £36.6m teenager Anthony Martial can be called upon as senior strikers following an exodus in the summer.

Javier Hernandez, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao were booted out of the club, while young academy graduate James Wilson was loaned out to Championship side Brighton.
