Because Manchester United’s friendly with Preston North End did not go as planned this weekend, the club will now concentrate on the match against Everton the following week.
When that time comes, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the rest of his coaching staff will be hoping that Raphael Varane has signed a contract with Manchester United.
The French goalkeeper intends to travel to Manchester this weekend to finalize his transfer to Manchester United. Varane, who is now 28 years old, has the opportunity to fly to Manchester on Saturday, but first, he must obtain a visa. Dean Henderson’s absence from the game is possible as he recovers from covid-19.
Manchester United is said to be in pole position to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez this summer. This information is derived from the world of player transfers.
The La Liga champions have reportedly given Saul’s representatives permission to negotiate a transfer, and United and Liverpool have both been heavily linked with the Spaniard in recent weeks. Raphael Varane reportedly had a “lengthy conversation” with Paul Pogba before his transfer to Manchester United.
Raphael Varane is expected to complete his move to Manchester United this week, with Paul Pogba reportedly playing a role in the agreement.
As Pogba enters the final year of his current contract at Old Trafford, new rumors and speculation will likely circulate that he will extend his time at the club.
Following Sancho’s transfer to United, Haaland admits him to the club
Erling Haaland has expressed his sadness that Jadon Sancho has left Borussia Dortmund after signing with Manchester United this summer. Sancho left the club following Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League match against Real Madrid.
After being Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s main target in each of the previous two summer transfer windows, Jadon Sancho finally arrived at Old Trafford last month after a £72.9 million transfer. The 21-year-old had previously played in the Bundesliga for four years, scoring 38 goals and assisting 45 times in 104 league games.
During the 18 months, they were both on the first team, he and Haaland developed a particularly intuitive understanding of one another, and he set up the Norwegian seven times during that time.
Liverpool’s star is being urged to emulate Lingard’s style of play
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, a Liverpool star, has been advised to follow in the footsteps of Jesse Lingard from the previous season and complete a transfer to West Ham during the offseason.
Although the Hammers have been linked with ‘the Ox,’ David Moyes is also keen on re-signing Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard, who has been impressing in pre-season training. Lingard has appeared sharp.
Glen Johnson, a former Liverpool, and West Ham fullback told BettingOdds.com that Oxlade-Chamberlain should follow in Lingard’s footsteps:
“Yes. Possibly. Alex will be able to play football free of interference from West Ham United, a fantastic football club.
I’m hoping that his body can make it through the entire upcoming season. Oxlade-Chamberlain and West Ham United, on the other hand, would make an excellent pairing.
Moyes would untie him, tell him to go have some fun, and then assess his potential. We can only hope that Alex can maintain his fitness and return to his former self.
Seven Manchester United players are expected to return to pre-season training
The remaining members of Manchester United’s squad are expected to return to pre-season training this week as the club continues to ramp up its preparations for the start of the new Premier League season.
United’s pre-season preparations have been moving at a snail’s pace thus far, and they were dealt a setback this week when the preseason friendly scheduled against Preston at Deepdale was canceled.
This was caused by a few players and staff members receiving positive covid-19 test results on Thursday. The PCR tests, however, came back negative, and those players have since rejoined the group.
“We’ve got everyone in on Monday,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after the friendly match between Brentford and Manchester United at Old Trafford. This will give the team two weeks of training before their season opener against Leeds United. Bruno Fernandes had returned to training the week before.
Henderson’s absence is explained in detail
According to a statement released by Manchester United, Dean Henderson is still recovering from covid-19, so the club’s current training camp is being held in Scotland rather than the United States.
Even though Henderson has fully recovered from the hip injury that forced him to miss England’s participation in Euro 2020, he is “still feeling the effects” of the virus, according to a statement released by Manchester United. “He is expected to resume training shortly,” United added.
Following the conclusion of the European Championships, David De Gea is currently in Scotland for a training camp with the rest of the team, where he is working out alongside Tom Heaton and Lee Grant.
Will Elanga start on the left side?
Anthony Elanga’s nomination for Manchester United’s left-wing position for the upcoming season has received backing. Ben Thornley, a former United player, had the following to say about Elanga on the club’s official website about how well he has performed in pre-season so far:
He may run for the left side of the field. That much is certain: he has unquestionably established himself as a leader. We had been discussing Mason Greenwood, Paul Pogba, and Dan James; however, if he continues to perform like that, the manager will find it difficult to ignore him, especially if he plays and scores goals. That is priceless.
I got the impression from watching him play the previous season that he was a young player who had progressed through the Under-23s. He moves quickly, prefers to play on the shoulder, and is versatile enough to play on either side or through the middle of the field. If he gets away, you’ll never be able to find him again. When he scored a goal at Wolves by putting the ball in the back of the net with his head, you saw that he is brave and has great feet.
After August is over, the coaching staff will have a lot of discussions about which players will be part of the squad, which players will go on loan, and which players will not be here. He is a young man who gives the impression of having a very clear head on his shoulders, and he was one of the players who piqued my interest last year. If he keeps it up, he has the potential to be an important part of Ole’s plans for the season, and he has earned that right thus far.

Williams’ outlook on United’s future
Despite Alex Telles’ injury, Brandon Williams has expressed interest in joining Manchester United on loan for the remainder of the season. Telles is currently using crutches and wearing a protective boot due to an ankle injury, and she is expected to be out until September.
Williams, who is now 20 years old, appeared in only 14 games for his team the previous season. Southampton is reportedly interested in loaning Williams out, but the left-back is hoping for more playing time this season.
The arrival of United in Scotland
Manchester United players have arrived in Scotland for a training camp north of the border in preparation for their final preseason friendly match against Everton on Saturday. On Monday, the players arrived in Scotland.
United took a break in Surrey last month between games against Derby and QPR. United will continue their preparations for the new season this month by attending a three-day camp in St. Andrews, which is located in Dundee.
United players including Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, David de Gea, and Phil Jones were photographed exiting the plane in what appeared to be foggy conditions.
Tuanzebe is currently being courted by the Magpies.
Newcastle United appears to have the upper hand in the race to sign Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe on loan. Tuanzebe, 23, was not given many chances during the previous season, and as a result, he would like to spend the upcoming season on loan with another club. Newcastle manager Steve Bruce is interested in signing the center-back.
When Bruce was the manager of Aston Villa in 2018, he loaned out Tuanzebe twice, and now that he is the manager of Newcastle, the club must rely primarily on loans to strengthen its roster. Rio Ferdinand mocks Harry Kane’s absence from training by comparing him to Paul Pogba.
A night that Gomes will remember fondly
Angel Gomes won his first trophy as a senior player last night, assisting Lille to a victory over PSG. Varane and Sancho have both demonstrated that they are the ideal candidates for Manchester United.
By the end of the week, Manchester United fans will have seen Jadon Sancho make his first appearance for the club. Furthermore, Raphael Varane could have made his club debut depending on when his quarantine in England begins and ends.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking to give his most senior players crucial game time in Manchester United’s final pre-season friendly against Everton on Saturday, which will be scrutinized further following the cancellation of United’s planned trip to Preston over the weekend, as United have been deprived of one important warm-up fixture. United’s final pre-season friendly will be against Everton.
The emphasis will be on physical preparation rather than the outcome of this weekend’s game, and as long as United gets off to a strong start in the Premier League, their preparations will be deemed justified.
Even though United fans already know what to expect from their two high-profile summer additions, the first images of Sancho and Varane in United club gear are likely to go viral as video-game transfer fantasies become reality.
