Jadon Sancho's Man Utd debut set to be pushed back as Solskjaer hopes both he and Varane will be on bench against Leeds

MANCHESTER UNITED fans are set to have to wait a little longer to see new £73million signing Jadon Sancho in action.

The England winger is only expected to return to pre-season training over the weekend after his exertions at Euro 2020.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had originally hoped to get him involved in tomorrow's Old Trafford friendly against Everton.

But Sancho, as well as fellow new recruit Raphael Varane, now faces a race against time to be involved in United's Premier League opener versus Leeds next weekend.

Solskjaer, 49, is hopeful that the duo will at least be available from the subs' bench.

He said: "I need to see how they are.

"I can't see them being available for Everton but hopefully they will be ready to be on the bench [against Leeds]."

Varane is still to undergo his medical at Carrington.

While Sancho is expected to start training immenently.

The two star signings are expected to tangibly improve the Red Devils this season.

And Solskjaer believes that this could be one of the fiercest Premier League battles yet.

He added: "This season coming up is one of the strongest Premier League seasons.
