Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to trim his squad in the January transfer window.

Manchester United are ready to offload four defenders in the January transfer window, according to reports. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to trim his squad as he looks to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title and competing with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.

The Red Devils want to offload defenders as they are interested in signing Villareal centre-back Pau Torres.

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is also interested and could provide competition for his former club.

The La Liga outfit want £60million for Torres, the amount of his release clause which could provide a stumbling block for any deal.

United boss Solskjaer is said to have made finding a defensive partner for Harry Maguire his priority.

That could mean Victor Lindelof, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly all leave the club, according to TeamTalk.

United are hoping Villarreal will be interested in re-signing Bailly to help them in their pursuit of Torres.

He joined the Red Devils for £30m back in 2016 but has struggled with injuries in recent seasons.

The Ivory Coast international has a contract which runs until 2022 and has been linked with Premier League rivals Arsenal and Tottenham

United would prefer to do a deal with Villarreal but they are aware they would need to subsidise Bailly's wages to make any transfer stick.

Solskjaer's current options in the centre of defence are the four players that could be sold, Maguire and hot prospect Axel Tuanzebe.

The Red Devils have looked shakey at the back this season, something Solskjaer wants to address.

United return to action later today when they take on Southampton in the Premier League (2pm).

Ahead of the match Solskjaer has been full of praise for Maguire and the character he has

“He’s probably never looked back since the international break because he is improving, getting better and better, as the rest of the team is,” said Solskjaer.

When asked if he had given Maguire any specific guidance during a tough spell for the Reds, the manager replied: “No, we have had conversations of course, but Harry is a very sensible and intelligent man.

“He is his own harshest critic as well, he’s a leader and he’s never been afraid of fronting the team or standing up there when things go against him.”

United will look for a big win against the Saints to close the gap on Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham at the top of the Premier League table.
