Their first starts for Man Utd at Wolves can be made by Varane and Sancho
Solskjaer has confirmed that Varane and Sancho can make their first starts with Man Utd at Wolves.
What did Solskjaer say?
Utd brought the long-term transfer saga to an end after it struck a £ 73m deal for Jadon Sancho in July, putting him away from Borussia Dortmund on a five-year deal. Raphael Varane became the second major signing of the Red Devils in the summer in a few weeks, when Real Madrid let him go for £ 40m after a decade of service, and supporters were able to see both men in action for the first time on Sunday.
Jadon Sancho has already made two cameo appearances from the Utd bench, but Raphael Varane has yet to make his debut, and now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shows why he had to gradually weaken both men in the bosom. The Norwegian hinted that the pair will be in his lineup at Molineux, while providing an update on Cavani, who has just returned to the club from his holidays.
The Norwegians’ head coach said both Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane had a bit of a delayed start to the preseason with illness for Sancho and visa and quarantine pending for Varane, but they trained well this week.
With Edinson Cavani, every week counts early on, every workout counts. It’s like they had the Carabao Cup games early last season and everyone got playing time.
It’s hard now with seven or eight days in between. You still want to breed him a little and get the squad to go because they know they need everything, but it’s not as easy as that. So the training was important and it was good.
Ole Gunnar has also been able to provide positive coverage of Telles, Rashford and McTominay as they all continue on the injury return path, and says No. 2 goalkeeper Henderson is close to returning from the Covid-19 bout.
