Manchester United New signing Donny van de Beek is set to wear the shirt for the first time when the Red Devils play against Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Dutch international became Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first this summer when he joined from Ajax. He will be one of the 10 players returning from international duties to future in a preseason friendly.

“It’s going to be a game to give players minutes,” Solskjaer told the club’s official website.

“Some have trained more than others and some will be more ready than others. Some played international games, which actually sometimes you think you don’t really want that but some of them have got valuable minutes there.

“We’ll give the others minutes against Villa so they can all start on a decent level because it’s going to be a long season.”Ole.Gunnar.Solskjaer

Solskjaer is also looking forward to having Luke Shaw back from injury but the trip to the West Midlands may come too soon for Axel Tuanzebe, who is on his way back to fitness.

“For me, Luke is looking really good in training. He has come back, looking strong, and will play in the friendly against Villa,” Solskjaer said.

“Then Axel is getting closer as well. In a few weeks’ time, I guess he will be with us training full-time and hopefully we’ll be able to give him games quickly.”

Manchester United will play their first premier league match against Crystal Palace on September 19.
