Manchester United squad will be travelling to Spain this weekend to take advantage of the inaugural Premier League winter break.

Some players have been allowed some leave town by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a busy schedule during December and January.

Most of the Man Utd players have chosen to spend some with their families, however, few of them, including Jesse Lingard, Luke Shaw and Diogo Dalot, used the time to work on their fitness in Dubai.

United will stay in Marbella, where Solskjaer took former club Molde for pre-season training in 2018. The MEN reported earlier in the week that Paul Pogba (ankle) and Scott McTominay (knee) would not travel due to injury.

They’ll have a week or so off and we’ve got more days [rest] because we’re playing Chelsea on Monday,” Solskjaer said.

“So we’ll get together on Saturday and we’ll have a good camp, working on different things.

“Of course, we’ve got a few new players, hopefully, we can integrate them into the squad. [The players] have been fantastic. We’ve had to, with all the injuries we’ve had, rely on many of these to maybe play more games than they should, and they’ve been brilliant.”

January signings Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo will both travel to Spain with their new teammates.

Pogba’s absence from the camp prompted reports he has been ‘axed’ from the camp as speculation continues to surround his future but it was never intended that he would travel.

  1. So pogba isnt going so this definitely means he is leaving doesnt it. But neither is McTominey does this mean he’s also leaving. Or does it mean they are staying behind to receive treatment. Until Pogba walks out of the door he is a United player. Who knows what the next few months will bring maybe he will have a change of heart if he thinks he can do things with Fernandes in the team.
