Manchester United transfer news RECAP Man Utd ‘to sign’ Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho this week – Manchester Evening News

Manchester United made a winning return to action on Sunday in their first friendly of pre-season.

It was a squad missing the majority of its key stars as they take holidays following participation in international tournaments but United still put on a promising display as they defeated Derby County 2-1.

Tahith Chong and Facundo Pellistri grabbed the goals for United, while Colin Kazim-Richards pulled one back for Wayne Rooney’s side.

The match also saw Jesse Lingard pull on a red shirt for the first time since returning from his loan spell at West Ham.

After the match, Ole Gunnar Solskhaer gave an update on the transfer of Jadon Sancho.

“From what I understand only paperwork, small little details, hopefully we can announce something,” Solskjaer said. “Let’s get all the paperwork done and get him over the line and then I can say what I truly feel about the player.”
