After the scheduled friendly with Preston North End this weekend did not go ahead, Manchester United will now turn their attentions to next week’s match.
United will face Everton on Saturday, August 7, in their final friendly of pre-season before kicking their Premier League campaign off at home to Leeds United the following week.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his staff will hope that Raphael Varane will officially be a United player by then.
The Frenchman hopes to travel to Manchester this weekend to complete his transfer to United. Varane, 28, can fly to Manchester on Saturday but has to obtain a visa before he can fly to England.
In transfer news, reports have claimed United are in pole position to sign Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez this summer.
It’s said Saul’s representatives have been given permission from the La Liga champions to negotiate a transfer, and United and Liverpool are two sides that have been heavily linked with the Spaniard in recent weeks.
While it’s said that Saul’s agent will now fly to England with the hope of engineering a move for the midfielder, it’s reported that United are leading the race for his signature and that the player wants the uncertainty surrounding his future to be solved swiftly.
