SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "(Victor) Lindelof is fine and (Romelu) Lukaku won't be fit, no.

He has been working with the physios the last few days so I don't think he will make this one either." REPORTER, ASKING (English): "Do you regret at all bringing him out here?

Has it still been worth it to bring him here if he's not been able to play?" "Well, he got injured in training so he had to stay here.

It's not too bad and if it was worse, we would have sent him home but he has been working with the physios in the gym stuff so, no." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "I think our fans know what Paul (Pogba) has given the club and what he can give us.

And of course there are some loud, some small minority, and no, Paul has been absolutely top in the group and I think both me and players will testify to that, that he's never ever been a second problem here and we're just grateful when he performs as well as he does." 5.

MANCHESTER UNITED MIDFIELDER, PAUL POGBA, DOING RUNNING DRILL WITH TEAM MATES STORY: Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told reporters on Wednesday (July 24) Romelu Lukaku was not fit to play against Tottenham Hotspur in Shanghai on Thursday (July 25).

Lukaku is yet to feature on the pre-season trip to Australia, Singapore and China after taking a knock in training last week and he trained by himself on Wednesday.

Speaking to journalists ahead of their International Champions Cup match against Spurs, Solskjaer said he didn't regret having Lukaku on the pre-season tour despite the injuries.

The Belgium international, who joined United two years ago, has been targeted by Inter Milan, but talks between the two clubs have stalled recently, according to British media reports.

Solskjaer was also pressed on the focus and form of midfielder Paul Pogba, who joined United from Juventus in 2016 for a then-world record fee of 89.3 million pounds ($110.83 million) and has been linked with a move away from the club.

Solskjaer was full of praise for Pogba saying his team mates and fans know what the France international brings to the squad.

The Manchester United boss added that he was encouraged by what he's seen in pre-season so far and believes the squad could do well in the upcoming season.

United have pledged to invest in their squad in the close-season following a disappointing sixth-placed finish in the Premier League, 32 points behind champions

Class="kln">Manchester City.

They have so far signed defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace and Wales winger Daniel James from Championship side Swansea City.

Solskjaer has already said the team would need a "miraculous season" to mount a challenge in the next campaign because of how much their rivals have improved.

United kick off their new league season against Chelsea at Old Trafford on August 11.
