Manchester United vs AC Milan Preview Red Devils aim for a perfect end to preseason against Milan

The England centre-back is set to be announced as a United player early next week after an £80 million fee was agreed with Leicester on Friday.

When asked whether that meant Young was club captain, Solskjaer replied: "You can probably call it that."
I wasn't going to risk anything this weekend. He should be OK for Chelsea'.

Pogba said in June that he could seek a new challenge after three years at United, while his agent told The Times last month that the 26-year-old intends to leave the club amid reports linking him to Juventus and Real Madrid.

The 26-year-old England global has kept fit playing in Leicester's pre-season matches and Solskjaer admits it's an option to select the world's most expensive defender right away. "But he's played a few games over the summer so we'll just have to assess him as and when".

United led early on thanks to Marcus Rashford's opener but first Suso, then an own goal from Victor Lindelof, turned the game on its head at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

While United were having problems at the back, they still looked unsafe going forward and it was no surprise when Martial rolled a pass into second-half substitute Jesse Lingard, who fired the equaliser past former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina.

De Gea saved from Paolo Maldini's 17-year-old son Daniel Maldini before Wales worldwide Dan James scored with the decisive kick for United.

Jesse Lingard pulled the scores level at 2-2 before James struck the winning penalty in the resulting shoot-out, meaning United finished their pre-season campaign unbeaten.

Luke Shaw nearly found a spectacular second for United when he met a cross from Ashley Young on the volley - his ambitious attempt flying just wide - before Lingard joined Rashford in finding weakness on the right-hand side of the Milan defence to slot home.

"I've spoken to Rom, to put it that way", said Solskjaer.

With five wins out of five and significant activity in the transfer market, Manchester United will be content with their performance so far.
