As the new pre-season continues at Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke to the media about what he expects from the players.
Manchester United started the pre-season with some interesting possibilities as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer leads his group of players. There are still many footballers who haven’t arrived back from the busy Euros summer, especially the England stars. However, there is some great news about the chances Man United has of signing a new player. According to various sources, Raphael Varane is willing to become a United player this summer.
All the club needs to do is negotiate with Real Madrid over a fair price. But the French defender understands his time in Spain is over and he is seeking new challenges. In hindsight, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made some very interesting progress over the years since he arrived at the club. Last season, he managed to finish the season in second place and reached the Europa League final. It is obvious that the new season will be far more demanding.
Solskjaer is ready for the new season at United.
As the club goes through the new pre-season, Ole is very happy to be back in full swing as he told the club’s official website: “It’s fantastic to be here. The facilities are great and we’re together, that’s the main thing for that bonding. We all eat together and spend time with each other and it’s a chance to really do some good work and really put down a foundation for the rest of the season for these boys, and men some of them!

“It’s a decision we made. Of course, we drive up the road and have great facilities at Carrington, but it is special to have that pre-season tour feeling. The intensity of training will be good. It’s always great when you get through a hard week of training and then maybe the weather cools down a little bit and you feel so much stronger as a player and you feel you can run more. It’s an important week for us.”
