Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently without two Manchester United first team players in Anthony Martial and Donny van de Beek who have been left back Carrington while the rest of the squad travelled to Surrey.

The Norweigan boss is leading a training camp at Pennyhill Park in the Shire county but neither Martial or van de Beek have travelled the 210 miles down the M6 as they are under medical review.

Martial has been injured since March after suffering a ruptured knee whilst on interntaional duty with France. The 25-year-old hobbled off during Le Blues 2-0 win over Kazakhstan in a World Cup qualifier.

As for van de Beek, he was forced to pull out of the Netherlands Euro 2020 squad due to a groin injury.

The Manchester Evening News report that the pair are set to join the rest of the squad on Monday but are working under the supervision of medical and fitness staff as they prepare to link up with the squad for full pre-season training on July 26.

The Red Devils face Queens Park Rangers on Saturday for their second fixture of pre-season.

This game will come too early for both Martial and van de Beek but Solskjaer has not ruled out the duo making an appearance next week when United ramp up their pre-season schedule:

"They're not ready yet," Solskjaer said of Martial and Van de Beek. "They'll probably be 100 per cent training with us a week on Monday. They're still working hard to step into the group."

Man Utd will travel to newly promoted Brentford on Wednesday before making the trip to Deepdale to face Preston North End three days later.
