Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has promised that 'most' of his players would have a chance to show they deserve to play a big part in Manchester United's future.

The Red Devils who have started preparations for the new season welcomed the majority of his players back from holiday, as they hope to do better than the last few years in Solskjaer's first full season.

The Norwegian has brought in Daniel James from Swansea and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace as his first major signings ahead of their pre-season tour to Australia.

"Yeah, there is a chance for everyone. They are all going to be a part of this. Well, most of them anyway," Solskjaer said when asked if every player would begin with a clean slate.

"I always felt the first couple of weeks was a big chance for me to impress the gaffer and to show him that I am ready for the season," Solskjaer said.

Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as interim manager in December 2018 before he was giving the job on a permanent basis. The 46-year-old says that period allowed him to accrue "great knowledge" of his team.

"At Manchester United, and in the Premier League, I have to say, you have to be at our best for long, long periods," Solskjaer told United's official website.

"You've got to be consistent. You can see the top two teams last season were so consistent. We've got to get up there so that's great knowledge and learning for us, and a great experience.

"Of course, to have the pre-season together and lay down the foundations and principles to get the fitness, the tactics, and the mentality right, and to get the team gelled as one, is important."
