And United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward told under-fire manager Solskjaer it is time to give value for money.

Woodward declared: “Our top priority is success on the pitch.

“The manager,  players, everyone at the club are determined to achieve that objective.”

Solskjaer will be without injured Paul Pogba for Saturday’s crunch at Watford as the midfielder recovers from a thigh injury.

The summer arrivals of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho helped to push up United’s wage bill by 23.1 per cent.

Revenues for the three months to September 30 were up 16 per cent to £126.5m as supporters finally returned to Old Trafford.

Solskjaer returned to training at Carrington on Wednesday after a week off following the gutless 2-0 home defeat to Manchester City.

That followed a 5-0 Old Trafford humiliation at the hands of Liverpool.

United are sixth in the Premier League, nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea, who they visit next weekend.
