Manchester United have confirmed Erik ten Hag travelled to Thailand on Friday with 31 Manchester United players for the club’s pre-season tour.

Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t travel with the squad to Thailand as he has been granted additional time off to deal with a family issue.

Defender Phil Jones is following a specialist pre-season programme, as was the case last summer, to ensure he is best prepared for the campaign ahead.

Brandon Williams, back from a loan spell at Norwich City, has a small issue and so is continuing to work at Carrington.

Andreas Pereira, back from his loan spell with Brazilian club Flamengo, didn’t travel with the squad as he is reportedly completing a transfer to Fulham.

Goalkeepers: David De Gea, Tom Heaton, Nathan Bishop, Matej Kovar.

Defenders: Eric Bailly, Diogo Dalot, Ethan Laird, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Tyrell Malacia, Luke Shaw, Alex Telles, Axel Tuanzebe, Raphael Varane, Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Midfielders: Amad, Bruno Fernandes, Fred, James Garner, Hannibal, Zidane Iqbal, Scott McTominay, Facundo Pellistri, Charlie Savage, Donny van de Beek.

Forwards: Tahith Chong, Anthony Elanga, Alejandro Garnacho, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho.

Premier League rivals Chelsea are trying to hijack Manchester United’s move for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

Reports from Spain claim Chelsea have made an irresistible offer to Barcelona for the Dutch midfielder.
