Sir Alex will take a 22-man squad to America on Monday morning as the Reds jet off to begin their pre-season tour.

Experienced campaigners including Edwin van der Sar, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes will be joined by a host of younger squad members with the likes of Corry Evans, Ben Amos and Tom Cleverley included on the trip. New signing Javier Hernandez, who represented Mexico at the World Cup, will link up with his new team-mates in Houston on 27 July.

Captain Gary Neville will stay behind after suffering a calf injury in training. A club spokeswoman told ManUtd.com: "Gary has suffered a minor setback in training with a small tear to his calf muscle. He therefore won’t be going on the tour as it will be more beneficial for him to remain at Carrington to improve his chances of being ready for the start of the season."

From 12-30 July, Sir Alex's men will be visiting cities in America, Canada and Mexico. First stop is Chicago for a training camp, before the Reds' first match on Friday 16 July against Celtic in Toronto. The squad will then head to Philadelphia for a meeting with Philadelphia Union on Wednesday 21 July, before travelling to Kansas City to take on the Kansas City Wizards on 25 July. Next stop is Houston for a match against the MLS All-Stars, before the Reds end their trip with a visit to Guadalajara to take on Hernandez's former club Chivas on 30 July.

Travelling squad: Edwin van der Sar, Tomasz Kuszczak, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Dimitar Berbatov, John O'Shea, Wes Brown, Rafael, Jonny Evans, Darren Fletcher, Darron Gibson, Chris Smalling, Nani, Fabio, Federico Macheda, Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez (will join in Houston on 27 July), Mame Biram Diouf, Tom Cleverley, Ritchie De Laet, Corry Evans, Ben Amos, Gabriel Obertan.


Glad to see Corry Evans in Squad. He had a good season in reserves. Thought Nani was injuried, but if he was included in the squad, he should be able to play then. Looking foward to see Chicharito in action.

Shame Valencia isn't going but I suppose it's good in a way as it gives Obertan a chance. Will be nice to see the young 'uns play.

Yet to see Cleverley. Might have seen a goal or 5 on Sky Sports/Football League show highlights. But that's about it.

I think they'll have more of an impact towards the end of the season or definitely next year, what with Scholes, Giggs, Neville and Edwin all likely to retire.
