Manchester United have welcomed some familiar and new faces back into first team training at Carrington.

Manchester United’s international stars returned to pre-season training on Saturday, with the likes of Casemiro and Diogo Dalot back in the mix.

The players are now building up their fitness ahead of the Red Devils’ pre-season tour, set to fly to USA later this week after a friendly against Lyon in Scotland.

There were a handful of young faces in the mix too, including 17-year-old prospect James Nolan.

James Nolan trains with first team

James Nolan was pictured above mixing it with Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford in one of the weekend training sessions.

The 17-year-old Englishman is a bright prospect, capable of playing in both midfield and defence.

Last season he featured mostly at right-back, also filling in at left-back, centre-back and in central midfield.

Amid all this position switching, Nolan managed to score six goals for the under-18s last season and add a further five assists.

He actually made his under-18s debut in 2021 when he was just 15, and now getting the opportunity to train with the first team is a positive step.

18-year-old centre-back Sonny Aljofree was also involved in the session too, with United’s coaching staff keen to run the rule over the many talented prospects at the club.

Youngsters impress in friendly

On Saturday another group of Manchester United youngsters took on non-league side Gainsborough Town in a friendly.

Teden Mengi was among those who started, with the centre-back continuing his return to full fitness after injury struggles.

United drew the game 1-1 with 16-year-old Shea Lacey netting for the Red Devils.
