Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sets early start date for Manchester United pre-season

After just releasing the stunning new home kit, which pays tribute to the treble-winning 1998/99 season, expectations were high as many wondered how United would follow it up.

Wayne Rooney is now of the opinion that players need to start fearing and respecting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching staff before the start of the new season. Is that the solution?

And he told French publication L'Equipe that United still has not addressed the problems that he endured during his time at the club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains the "perfect match" for Manchester United and should be treated with patience at Old Trafford, according to Robin van Persie.

The report also claimed that midfielder, Paul Pogba, will serve as the Red Devils' vice-captain.


"However, the potential is there for City to dominate English football for years to come unless something is done to change the structure of the game and control the way clubs manage their finances".

However, the story goes on to suggest that both Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid would be willing to meet Manchester United's asking price for the France worldwide.

Van Persie was at Old Trafford for three seasons between 2012 and 2015, scoring 58 goals in 105 games across all competitions.

"Everyone was screaming like, "Give the guy a permanent deal". I don't think it is that but for some reason they just didn't perform the last seven, eight games of the season, which has cost them". Selling him for £60 million, where he would link up with former United player Ander Herrera, would allow the club to raise funds for his replacement. At £16.5 million, that makes him reasonably priced and eminently affordable for Newcastle - they would be foolish to turn down a player who already knows the club and has performed well. You have got social media.

"I think we've got a wide range of experiences within the staff at the moment". The move is aimed at avoiding time-wasting, a tactic often employed by players to buy time.
