Mark Bosnich reckons his former side Manchester United will be one of only three Premier League clubs to have money to spend in the summer transfer window which will boost their hopes of landing their key targets.
Ex-Liverpool and Tottenham director of football Damien Comolli revealed he has been told only three teams will have money to spend following the coronavirus pandemic.
Revenue streams have been hit hard as the killer virus has seen all football postponed since March 10.
Play will not resume until June at the very earliest and that is set to have a damning impact on the transfer window.
But Bosnich thinks United will still have the spending power to beat their rivals to the best available talent.
“I think they are always one of those clubs and that goes back for quite some time,” Bosnich told Sky Sports News.
“We have also got to be aware of the whole situation in terms of what’s going on with prices and actual money to spend.
“I duo believe regardless of the COVID-19 situation, United will be the club that has the money and funds ready to spend.
“Regardless if you spend £90m or £9m on a player it is still a little bit of a gamble.
“They will definitely be in a position to do that as they have been.”

Comolli claims he has spoken to agents who have explained how severely the coronavirus will affect transfers.
“An agent was telling me the other day, that there are actually only three clubs in the Premier League will be able to spend money next summer in the transfer window,” Comolli said.
“I don’t know if this is correct but usually when agents tell you things like this, they usually get intel.
“We might see very little transfer activity, we might see swaps, we might see loans and I think we are going to see a massive decrease in transfer fees and transfer activity, at least transfers involving money.
“The longer this crisis goes on, more clubs are going to be in a financially difficult situation.
“The first thing that will be impacted will be player remuneration, the second thing will be transfer fees.”
