Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the board are yet to come to agreement over this summer’s transfer budget.
Solskjaer has identified four areas to strengthen his squad this summer, but his spending spree could be delayed.
According to the UK Metro, the United boss met with Old Trafford chiefs last month to discuss transfer plans but was unable to agree a finalised budget.
It is understood that the uncertainty surrounding Champions League football for the Red Devils next season meant they could not decide their exact plans.
The news leaves Solskjaer at the risk of being left behind in the transfer market, as rivals clubs look to act early on targets.
The Norwegian was appointed permanent manager on a three-year deal last week, having enjoyed a successful spell since replacing Jose Mourinho in December.
