Nevertheless, the Red Devils are already looking towards the new season, which will bring with it new players and new kits, one of which has leaked online.

"Since returning in December, I have enjoyed working with Ole, Michael [Carrick], Kieran [McKenna], Mark [Dempsey] and Emilio [Alvarez] and we are all focused on preparing for the new season". We drive this, we lead them on, but we want the players to be the main core of the surge forward, and we've got some experienced lads.

Do you think Daniel James can replicate United legends like Ronaldo and Rooney?

"A club with thousands of fans that respect and remember all the players who give everything". We want to get back to where we sued to be. "We expect them to be ready to go on the 1st July when we start", said Solskjaer. "They own their own fate to be fair".

Solskjaer has spoken previously about the lack of fitness among the players he inherited from Jose Mourinho.

A host of Premier League clubs have lined up moves for in-demand attacker James this summer, but United are determined to win the race for the Welshman's signature after Football Insider revealed in midweek they had set their sights on him. Luke Shaw will continue to play at left-back.

"I think for me personally it's probably been my best season since I've been here".

A huge squad overhaul is expected at Old Trafford when the transfer window opens though Merson reckons United will struggle to sign top players.

"Challenging for the title next year would be a miraculous season because we are so far behind at the moment, points-wise", Solskjaer said on BBC Football.
