But if his Instagram feed is anything to go by, he is making sure that he is absolutely ready for when he does.

The ripped winger showed off pictures from what looked to be an intense workout on social media.

Sancho, 21, completed sit-ups and lifted weights with his shirt off and as he prepares to link up with Marcus Rashford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Co at Carrington for the first time.

Fans will be desperate to see him make his debut for the club, when the Red Devils take on Everton at Old Trafford on August 7.

And they were loving this post, with one writing: “The prem ain’t ready👀🔥.”

While another added: “Looking fit for next season💪.”

Chelsea star Tammy Abraham commented: “😤💪🏾.”

And former Man United winger Memphis Depay wrote: “Let’s go! 🔥.”

Sancho and his fellow England stars were warned by Solskjaer that if they weren’t in tip-top shape, that they’d be benched to start the season.

The Norwegian, 49, said: “With the boys who’ve not come back yet, I’ve not got a Scooby-Doo how they are fitness wise.

“Everyone’s due in on Monday, they’ve got two weeks until the first game and that means it’s three weeks since their last game ­— Fred at the Copa America and the English finalists.


“So we’ll see how they are, what fitness levels they’re at, because it’s also down to what they’ve done during the holidays.

“I can’t just throw them in if they’re not fit enough.”

Solskjaer saw his pre-season plans hit a roadblock this week, when this weekend’s scheduled friendly with Preston was postponed due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in the Red Devils camp.
