Sir Alex Ferguson is preparing to let £35million new arrivals Owen Hargreaves and Anderson loose over the next 72 hours as Manchester United´s pre-season campaign steps up a pace.
Hargreaves spent the entire Far East tour as a frustrated spectator as he struggled to overcome a minor ankle injury he aggravated in training. Meanwhile, Anderson only started training at Carrington this week after spending his summer on Copa America duty with Brazil.
But Ferguson confirmed both men would play some part in United´s next two friendlies, against Doncaster and Peterborough, saying: "Owen Hargreaves and Anderson will be involved over the next couple of games."
