Anthony Martial and Donny van de Beek are required to begin preparing in seven days’ time, having missed the initial fourteen days of pre-season trainnig.
Martial sustained a knee injury on international obligation with France on March 28 and has not played since, while Van de Beek needed to pull out from the Netherlands’ Euros squad.
“They’re not ready yet,” Solskjaer said of Martial and Van de Beek. “They’ll probably be 100 per cent training with us a week on Monday. They’re still working hard to step into the group.
“Fernandes and Pogba? It won’t be next week, no. The week after.”
Van de Beek, Martial, Fernandes, and Pogba may not be fit enough for selection against Brentford in an Old Trafford friendly on July 28 and could return to the team at Preston North End on July 31.
