Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has detailed his plans for new arrivals Alex Telles, Facundo Pellistri and Edinson Cavani.

The trio signed for the Old Trafford side on a hectic transfer deadline day, following in Donny van de Beek’s footsteps this summer.

Telles was brought in from Porto after weeks of negotiations to bolster the Red Devils’ options at left-back, bringing Champions League experience.

While Cavani, a free agent after PSG failed to renew his contract, is getting back to the fitness that saw him become the French side’s all-time top scorer.

Pellistri was a surprise signing on deadline day – but the 18-year-old’s impressive performances for Penarol grabbed United’s attention earlier this year.

It has seen fans debate how the manager will fit all of his new players into the starting XI ahead of facing Newcastle on Saturday.

And United’s boss has now hinted at the plans he has Telles, Cavani and Pellistri this season.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference, Solskjaer said: “Well, we're looking forward to integrating them into the group.

“Facundo, he's been in training with us now two days. Very exciting, young enthusiastic player with some attributes that we don't have.

“Of course he's one maybe more for the future, maybe not for just now because he's still 18.

“Alex came in yesterday, did his recovery after a long, long flight from Sao Paulo, having come on twice for Brazil so we're looking forward to integrating him.

“Edinson has still not been with the group because of his quarantine, so all three of them have got something different to what we have and they'll definitely come in and help us.

“I think the group, as well, are looking forward to having them join in.”

While United bolstered their squad over the summer, it did see them miss out on top target Jadon Sancho.

And it saw Rene Meulsenteen, Sir Alex Ferguson’s former assistant coach, lay into his former side for their transfer strategy this summer.
