Manchester United left for Shanghai on Tuesday afternoon, arriving there on Wednesday morning (early hours in the United Kingdom). The squad which Jose Mourinho had picked for the pre-season tour was announced on Tuesday morning, ahead of the departure. United will face Borussia Dortmund on Friday afternoon and Manchester City on Monday afternoon before returning to Manchester early next week. A week on Saturday, United will face Galatasaray in Gothenburg, which I think will be Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s first match in the United shirt – four days later facing Everton at Old Trafford for Wayne Rooney’s testimonial before a clash with the Premier League champions Leicester City for the FA Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday 7th August 2016. Paul Pogba is very much in the news again, with United said to be nearing the end of the deal, which could be a world record fee. Remember to check back throughout the remainder of the day to check up on all the latest Manchester United news.
