Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Paul Pogba will make his debut for the club on Friday against Southampton.
The Frenchman is expected to play "some minutes" against the Saints in order to gain the required fitness level ahead of next week's away game at Hull City.
The 23-year-old returned to Old Trafford after spending four years at Juventus after the Red Devils paid €105million to the Italian reigning champions.
"We played with some players against Leicester with less training than Paul," Mourinho told reporters on Thursday.
"We had guys coming back from the Euros, who were on holidays, had one week of training and they played against Leicester [in the Community Shield], not at the top of their game, not ready for 90 minutes.
"But they played and performed and it was a good way for them to accelerate that process. In this moment they are in the building-up process of their form.
"Paul has been training for more than a week, around 10, 11 days, adaptation is really easy because he is a boy from here, he knows the club, he knows everybody. There's no need for time to adapt.
"He needs time to build his condition and his understanding in the way the team tries to play. Yes, he's ready to play. Ninety minutes? I don't believe.
"Super performance? I don't believe. But in condition to accelerate his process of integration in the team, that's for sure."
