Despite caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer happy with his current squad, United still are looking to sign players in January.

The 20-time English champions look to be back on track under the Norwegian coach.

Old Trafford club officials are now planning to enhance their top four and Champions League chances by making new additions.

Koulibaly is a player they are desperate to bring in but are starting to accept that a move this month is unlikely.

The Red Devils are now prepared to wait until the summer to move for the 27-year-old who is open to a move.
