Raphael Varane might not be ready for the Leeds game.
The French defender signed a four-year deal with the Red Devils and is expected to undergo a medical this week before his arrival is announced.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes that the deal could be completed soon.
“[It’s] Paperwork now, you know, with Brexit and all that,” Solskjaer said. “I was going to say malarkey but I don’t want to go into politics!
“It’s cost us a few days, with the visa, but he’s been looking after himself.
“Of course, we’ve got his medical first and hopefully that’s going to be done soon.”
On the other hand, Jadon Sancho is also not available for training which means he would also be missing out on United’s first game against Leeds United.
“They still haven’t trained with us, and I need to see how they are,” Solskjaer added.
“I can’t see them being available for Everton [a pre-season friendly this weekend], but hopefully they will be ready to be on the bench [against Leeds].”
