All three are in line to feature in United’s maiden fixture under new boss Jose Mourinho at Wigan on Saturday.

Attacking midfielder Mkhitaryan and central defender Bailly arrived in big-money summer moves from Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal respectively while Shaw, the full-back who missed the rest of United’s season after suffering a broken leg in September, will also make a welcome appearance.

A statement on United’s website on Wednesday said a number of youngsters are likely to feature in the match as well, with some, including James Wilson, Andreas Pereira, Tim Fosu-Mensah, Axel Tuanzebe, Joel Castro Pereira and Dean Henderson, having trained with the first team that morning.

The likes of Memphis Depay, Juan Mata, Ander Herrera, Michael Carrick, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Adnan Januzaj, Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones and Daley Blind were also part of the proceedings at the club’s Aon Training Complex in Carrington, overseen by Mourinho and his long-time assistant Rui Faria.

Not present was Zlatan Ibrahimovic, United’s other new summer recruit, who is currently on holiday after playing for Sweden at Euro 2016.
