Manchester United play their third match of the pre-season on Saturday, facing off against Italian giants Internazionale in Singapore. The clash will be United’s first involvement in this summer’s International Champions Cup, the amusingly-named friendly summer tournament. After making a full XI changes at half time of both matches so far, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that some players will now get 60 or 75 minutes, as the intensity of the team’s pre-season preparations begins to ramp up.
David de Gea is in line to make his pre-season debut after being ill this week, forming part of a starting XI that will likely resemble Solskjaer’s strongest available. One player who will not be involved is Romelu Lukaku, who is looking increasingly likely to be playing for United’s opponents next season. Inter manager Antonio Conte has confirmed his interest in United’s number 9, and while the official reason for Lukaku’s non-participation is lack of fitness, a transfer seems to be imminent.
