Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has issued a stern warning to his Manchester United flops concerning their fitness levels and vowed to sell anyone who returns out of shape on July 1.

According to Daily Star, the Norwegian has been left stunned by the fitness of his squad since replacing Jose Mourinho in December and has put them on personal fitness regimes for the next six weeks and ordered them to report back to pre-season training ahead of schedule.

A source at the club said: "He was genuinely shocked at how unfit some of them were for top-level professional athletes.

"He couldn't do too much about this during the second half of the season.

"But he isn't messing about. The players have been told to work on their fitness during the close season and those who look like they've ignored him will be axed."

Solskjaer is set for a major revamp of his Manchester United squad after a disappointing campaign in which they finished sixth.
