Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed when new Manchester United signing Jadon Sancho will train with his team-mates for the first time.

The England international winger completed his transfer from Borussia Dortmund on 23 July but was not involved at last week's St Andrews camp.

However, he has shared several images and videos on his social media accounts which highlight how hard he is working to get ready for the new season and the boss confirmed that he would be present at Carrington on Monday.

The boss will evaluate Sancho then, with the hope that he can be involved to some extent in the Premier League opener with Leeds United at Old Trafford on Saturday 14 August.

There was further good news from Solskjaer's press conference, conducted after the 4-0 friendly win over Everton, as he provided another update on prospective arrival Raphael Varane.

A fee has already been agreed for the Frenchman to sign from Real Madrid but, as Ole highlighted earlier this week, a few complications with a visa have resulted in final confirmation being delayed.

However, the centre-back is now in the country - he even watched the Everton game on MUTV - and will isolate before conducting a medical.

“Of course the medical with Raphael has to be done,” said Ole.

“He’s isolating at the moment, he had to wait for visas, so unfortunately that took a few more days than expected but we’re gonna follow the protocols and the rules so it’s took a few more days than we hoped for.

“Jadon is in for Monday and hopefully then he’s in decent nick and can be involved.”

“Hopefully, we'll get Raphael and Jadon in with the group,” Solskjaer added, when speaking to MUTV.

“That's important for us when you sign two players like that, that you get them in.”
