​Solskjaer explains how Ronaldo, Varane raising standards in Man Utd dressing room

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that adding quality players to the squad raises everyone's standards.

United have improved their squad with the additions of Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho, and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Aside from their individual impact on games, Solskjaer believes that having such quality players come into the squad ensures that everyone else has to perform better to justify their place in the team.

"The more quality you add to the group and the more healthy competition and leaders who they look up to," Solskjaer said.

"I think seeing Raphael [Varane] and Cristiano coming it's raised everyone's eyebrows because they are winners, they have won everything there is to win and they put demands on themselves which the young boys, the rest of the team, they look at them and think: 'That is how you stay at the top.'

"So it is only going to be good for everyone and there is competition for places which is great for me to see."
