The Red Devils are back in Europe for two friendlies as they prepare for the upcoming UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid

Manchester United will play the penultimate game of their pre-season against Valerenga in Oslo on Sunday.

The Red Devils have completed their tour of the United States and now have two matches in Europe - with the second coming against Sampdoria in Dublin - before they take on Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.

The latest Man Utd transfer rumours

Valerenga are midway through their season, which runs from April to November in Norway, and so should present a stern test for United due to their match fitness.

GAME PREVIEW


Henrikh Mkhitaryan Man Utd

Jose Mourinho will hope to get his players the extra minutes they need and fine tune his first-choice lineup in this match as well as the one against Sampdoria after it.

The Portuguese coach has indicated that he will pair Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof in central defence in Oslo as Eric Bailly is suspended for the UEFA Super Cup, which demonstrates that he is keen to give his preferred starting XI a test run before facing Real Madrid.

Fellaini 'close' to Man Utd exit

It will be interesting to see how he configures his attack, with Romelu Lukaku surely starting as his No.9 from day one of the new campaign but Marcus Rashford is in fine form and demanding to be accommodated.

Then there is the midfield, where Ander Herrera was used as both as a box-to-box player and an anchorman last season. His role against Madrid probably depends on whether Mourinho prefers Michael Carrick or Marouane Fellaini alongside the Spaniard and Paul Pogba, but it also seems a new signing is likely in the middle of the park.

There is clearly a young core starting to emerge, though, with Lukaku, Pogba, Rashford, Lindelof, Bailly and Anthony Martial all 24 or younger and Herrera and David de Gea still with time on their side at 27 and 26 respectively.

That group has the potential to win major trophies, but they will be expected to deliver a significant improvement on last season's sixth-place league finish.
