Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United retain the power to compete at the top end of the transfer market despite warnings their status as the Premier League's richest club is "at risk".
According to Deloitte's Football Money League, United's revenue of £627.1 million ($814 million) in 2018-19 put them third overall behind only Barcelona and Real Madrid.
But the consulting firm warned United could soon find themselves slipping behind Liverpool and Manchester City due to their failure to qualify for the Champions League.
Solskjaer offered a robust defence of the club's status on Tuesday, speaking ahead of his side's FA Cup third-round relay against Wolves.
"The most important thing for me is we get the results sorted and the performances on the pitch," he said.
"But I know that we've got the resources, we've got the backing. If we need to go into the transfer market we are still up there so we're still in a good place."
United are reportedly in talks over a deal for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes, who could cost as much as £70 million, though Solskjaer offered no update on that or any other moves in the January market.
Wednesday's match against Wolves at Old Trafford could offer another opportunity for 18-year-old striker Mason Greenwood, who started in the goalless draw between the two sides at Molineux on January 4.
Greenwood has enjoyed a hugely impressive season to date, scoring nine goals for United's senior side in 26 appearances but Solskjaer cautioned against England taking him to Euro 2020, with concerns over the availability of the injured Harry Kane.
