Manchester United vs Perth Glory Match Preview
Manchester United begin their pre-season fixtures with the first of two matches in Perth – and still considerable doubts over who will be in their squad for the 2019-20 campaign.
Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku have both publicly voiced their desire to leave the Red Devils and although United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has played down transfer talk, offers from the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and Inter Milan are surely imminent.
Solskjaer has taken a squad of 28 on tour, leaving behind Matteo Darmian and Fred for “family reasons” plus Alexis Sanchez who was on Copa America duty, but even with several youngsters in the party it still looks an unwieldy-sized group to go into the new campaign.
And that would be especially true if United succeed in bringing in more signings to join Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who are set to make their debuts in Perth.
The home side, meanwhile, finished top of the A-League in the regular season last term by eight points but could not convert that supremacy into Grand Final victory, losing a penalty shootout to Sydney FC.
Perth have already won a pre-season friendly match 3-0 against a second-tier club but, without their former Republic of Ireland striker Andy Keogh here, they may not be quite good enough to cope with United even if, as expected, Solskjaer fields an entirely different line-up in each half.
