working well and we’re looking forward to Saturday.
“He’s been having a good pre-season with Juventus, he’s played for the national team,
he’s had a good week with us here.
He’ll definitely be on the pitch at some point, that’s for sure.”

Solskjaer feels the Portugal star brings a new dimension to the team.
“Everyone evolves and develops throughout their career,” Solskjaer explains
“Cristiano is a different player to one who left but he’s in such good nick still and he will be looking,
in the next few years to play as much as he can, to score as many goals as he can,
he’s a threat from direct set-plays himself, but also to be on the end of crosses and he’s adding something extra.
“We don’t have his skill-set in the team, the mix of his.
No one has, really! He is one of the best players that’s ever played the game.”
A further boost for United is Jadon Sancho has been passed fit after withdrawing from the England squad due to injury.
“Jadon has come back in and trained the last couple of days,”
“He’s disappointed he couldn’t play for England but determined to be fit and he’s available. That’s a positive.”
