Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez won’t join the Manchester United pre-season tour of Australia, according to Sky Sports reporter Melissa Reddy.
Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Eriksen while Martinez is currently in Manchester to complete his transfer.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Reddy explained: “The pair [Eriksen and Martinez] won’t fly out to Australia on pre-season tour.
“Initially, that was the thought – perhaps they could come link up with their teammates but there’s such a short spell left here in Australia.
“And when you consider how long the flight is, adjusting to the jet lag, it felt it wasn’t really beneficial. They can stay back and deal with any admin they need to take care of.”
Manchester United still have pre-season games against Atletico Madrid in Norway and Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford before the start of the Premier League season.
