Mason Mount named in Manchester United squad for Leeds United clash

Mason Mount is set to make his Manchester United debut in Wednesday’s pre-season friendly with Leeds United.

Mason Mount is in line to make his debut for Manchester United in Wednesday’s pre-season friendly with Leeds United, having made the trip to Oslo alongside his new teammates.

The England international completed a £55m move to Old Trafford last week, but there had been some doubt over his availability for this match, as he missed the end of last season following a pelvic operation.

Mount trained alongside his new teammates for the first time last Thursday, and it has now been confirmed that he has made the trip to Oslo for the pre-season contest.

The Red Devils number seven has not featured since appearing off the bench in Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League in the middle of April.

Lisandro Martinez is also in the squad, with the Argentina international recovering from the fractured foot that he suffered against Sevilla in the Europa League in the middle of April.

The 25-year-old recently returned to Carrington, and the defender is also in line to play against Leeds, who will turn out in the Championship next season following their relegation from the Premier League.

There is also experience in the shape of Raphael Varane, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jadon Sancho, while Fred has been included amid the speculation surrounding his future.

Fred is currently being heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with the Brazil international said to be available for the right price during the summer market.

Amad Diallo is back at Man United following a successful loan spell at Sunderland, and the Ivorian is also in line to feature against Leeds on Wednesday.

Hannibal Mejbri has also returned from a loan spell at Birmingham City and will be aiming to make an impression on head coach Erik ten Hag during the team’s preparations for the new campaign.

Tom Heaton is the only senior goalkeeper in the squad, with David de Gea‘s exit now being confirmed, and Dean Henderson, who is being heavily linked with a permanent move to Nottingham Forest, on the sidelines recovering from a thigh injury.

Full Man United squad vs. Leeds:

Tom Heaton, Nathan Bishop, Matej Kovar; Alvaro Fernandez, Rhys Bennett, Will Fish, Marc Jurado, Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Brandon Williams; Toby Collyer, Fred, Dan Gore, Hannibal Mejbri, Isak Hansen-Aaroen, Kobbie Mainoo, Mason Mount, Maxi Oyedele, Charlie Savage; Amad Diallo, Noam Emeran, Omari Forson, Joe Hugill, Jadon Sancho, Shola Shoretire
