Manchester United squad for 2017 US Tour and complete summer schedule

Jose Mourinho has the luxury of being able to take a full strength squad to the USA for the 2017 International Champions Cup. The touring United squad will be given the sternest of tests when facing: LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

New signing Romelu Lukaku is the only absentee following his big money transfer to Manchester United, a move which coincided with Wayne Rooney rejoining his boyhood club Everton. Lukaku is expected to join up with the United squad at some stage and all United fans will hope he makes a successful scoring debut.

United have two further games with Valerenga in Oslo, and Sampdoria in Dublin, before facing the what is likely to be the toughest summer test when taking on Champions League holders Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup in Skopje, Macedonia.

Full Man Utd squad:

Goalkeepers: De Gea, Sergio Romero, Joel Pereira.

Defenders: Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Eric Bailly, Daley Blind, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, Axel Tuanzebe, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Demetri Mitchell.

Midfielders: Ashley Young, Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Juan Mata, Andreas Pereira.
