Members of the 28-man squad Ole Gunnar Solskjær has travelled to Australia with reportedly share concern over the Norweigan’s training methods with the players made to do double-sessions of running upon their return from the summer break.
Manchester United play their first pre-season friendly on Saturday, facing Perth Glory, and fans will be hoping to see new additions Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in action for the first time in Red.
According to ESPN, foreign members of United’s squad have held concerns about Solskjær since February due to his preference of British players and his ‘British approach’. The outlet also report that the same source claims United’s first week of training was just ‘running, running and more running’.
The recruitment approach is suggested to be aiming at bringing in British talent this summer, with James (Welsh) and Wan-Bissaka (English) already joining the club and Harry Maguire (English) being targeted from Leicester City, though the Red Devils’ latest offer of £70m was rejected.
Fans had expected the futures of deadwood, including Ashley Young and Phil Jones, to have been elsewhere this summer but both look set to stay, despite Solskjær promising that members of the squad who suffered the 4-0 defeat to Everton would be axed from Old Trafford.
Rather than deadwood sales, it looks as though the most likely players to depart will be Romelu Lukaku, who is in negotiations with Inter, and Paul Pogba, who has admitted his wish to leave the club. An interesting remainder of the summer awaits United, with multiple additions needed and even more if Lukaku and Pogba do leave Manchester.
