MORNING, UNITED FANS
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Jadon Sancho is in “contention” for his full debut in Sunday’s Premier League clash at Southampton – despite United’s 5-1 opening day win at Leeds.
New £77million wideman Sancho came off the bench as Bruno Fernandes’ hat-trick led last Saturday’s romp.
But boss Solskjaer says England attacker Sancho is now fully fit and pressing for a start.
The Norwegian has also bigged up new centre-back Raphael Varane.
Solskjaer said of the France and ex-Real Madrid star: “He’s quick, strong, good in the air, he can play with both feet.
“The short answer is everything about him is what you want… everything about him is class.”
United have reportedly drawn up a four-man striker shortlist for next summer – including Kylian Mbappe.
Current main centre-forward Edinson Cavani, 34, is also out of contract in 10 months’ time and is widely expected to join Boca Juniors.
ESP suggest PSG speedster Mbappe, 22, is under consideration alongside Erling Haaland, Harry Kane and Lautaro Martinez.
Kane and Haaland are rated at £150MILLION but it’s believed the Borussia Dortmund goal machine has a £64m release clause that comes into play on September 1.
Finally, Solskjaer says he and Paul Pogba are leaving the France midfielder’s contract talks to club officials as their focus is on the pitch.
