Has Woodward made his January plans clear with Solskjaer's Manchester United appointment?

With the January transfer window fast approaching, talk was rife that Manchester United would sign at least one new player.
That was before Jose Mourinho left, to be replaced by interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Rumours persist that Ed Woodward will sign a centre-back next month. But the truth is United are unlikely to bring in any new players when they do not yet know the identity of their next permanent manager.
After all, Woodward is unlikely to risk spending big money on a player who may not start under another boss.

Similarly, Solskjaer’s temporary appointment means he is likely to have to make do with the players already at Old Trafford.
In an inflated transfer market, United’s current boss will not be given vast sums when he has only been tasked with the job for five months.
Had United employed a permanent manager now, a busy January may have been in store. Instead, fans can expect a quiet few weeks, whatever the papers may say.
