Solskjaer Confirms Addition Of Another Youngster To Man Utd’s First Team Squad

Ethan Laird has rejoined Manchester United first-team training ahead of the possible departure of Diogo Dalot.

The 19-old was promoted to the first-team sessions on July 8, but started for the Under-23s in their pre-season friendlies before lining up for the Under-21s .

Laird came off injured at the Peninsula Stadium and has generated interest from clubs in taking him on a season-long loan but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has restored him to the first-team squad.

Solskjaer named the Right-back among the prospects he had been impressed by when he was still the United caretaker manager and Laird was named in the travelling squad for their Europa League knockout games against Copenhagen and Sevilla in Cologne. He made his debut against Astana in the group stage last November and also came on in the 4-0 home win over AZ Alkmaar.

MEN revealed United are keeping the senior and junior squads separate at their Carrington training complex so they can train in their own bubbles.
