The Red Devils are not giving up in their pursuit of Sancho, who they failed to sign last year, while they face a tug of war over Chelsea target Rice and Man City interest Kane.

It is understood the three England internationals could cost a combined total of £300m, while Villarreal are likely to demand upwards of £50m for Torres.

Despite another trophyless season, the Red Devils have shown signs of progress by finishing second in the Premier League.

And Solskjaer is set to be rewarded with a new three-year contract at Old Trafford.

Questions were immediately asked about the Norwegian's future in charge after an uninspiring display on the biggest night of United's season in Gdansk.

Reaction from talkSPORT ranged from the former striker 'not having the chops' for the role, to calls for 'Ole out' with the manager apparently 'not at Man United's level'.

But the Daily Telegraph claim Solskjaer will be backed by Ed Woodward with a new contract, plus funds for summer signings due to the progress made at the club since his appointment.

It appears to be a parting gift from Woodward, who is set to leave his role as executive vice-chairman.
