Manchester United won a behind-closed-doors friendly with Premier League rivals Burnley at Old Trafford yesterday as Jadon Sancho started.
United took the opportunity to build up fitness after the 5-1 thrashing of Leeds at the weekend, with Harry Maguire opening the scoring.
Jesse Lingard and Fred were also on the scoresheet while Sancho made his first start since joining from Borussia Dortmund. But Raphael Varane wasn’t involved as he continues to work his way up to fitness, having only begun training with the rest of the squad yesterday.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo has been forced to address rumours linking him with an exit from Juventus, with United among the clubs loosely linked with his signature if he was to leave.
He wrote: “As well as this most recent episode in Spain, there have been frequent news and stories associating me with a number of clubs in many different Leagues, with nobody ever being concerned about trying to find out the actual truth.
“I’m breaking my silence now to say that I can’t allow people to keep playing around with my name. I remain focused on my career and in my work, committed and prepared for all the challenges that I have to face. Everything else? Everything else is just talk.”
