Manchester United players will be put through a punishing five-day regime when they return next week for the start of pre-season training.

The Red Devils will then fly out to Australia at the end of a week which will certainly better inform Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is ready for the battles to come.

It is understood the Old Trafford boss has scheduled a week of double training sessions in the morning and afternoon at their Carrington training HQ.

Players including Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford have received an itinerary which the Norwegian hopes will have his squad firing on all cylinders before the new campaign.

Solskjaer was surprisingly outspoken last term about the poor fitness levels in his ranks and has already warned players they will be left behind from the Far East tour if they return out of shape.

New signing Daniel James has been sharpening up at a fitness camp in Dubai and United’s backroom staff will be in Manchester a few days ahead of the squad to make their final preparations.
