Right guys, I'm logging off now. A big thank you for all your questions and apologies I didn't get round to answering them all. Keep an eye on the tour blog for all the news from the Reds camp. Bye for now!

When United are facing Guadalajara, will Chicharito be playing? - Akram Chebli
I'm sure he'll be desperate to play against his old team. He's due to join us on tour next week and I'm certainly looking forward to seeing him perform in training and, of course, in the red shirt out on the pitch in games. His performances and goals at the World Cup have whetted the appetite - let's hope he'll be banging in the goals for us this season.

What do the players do when they are not training? - Ivan Chan
For much of this tour they've been resting up after their hard training sessions, both in the morning and afternoon. A few of them will go for a walk or play some computer games or maybe stick a DVD on in their rooms. As with all pre-season tours there are a number of commercial activities scheduled whether it be taking part in a MU Soccer Schools clinic or a signing session for fans.

Which young players do you feel are most likely to push for a starting place this season? - Jonny Murray
United definitely have some great youngsters to call upon. I've been really impressed by Danny Welbeck in the opening two tour games while Tom Cleverley is another with great potential. I spoke to both Danny and Tom after the win over Philadelphia Union and they were both excited to be involved in the tour, but also willing to go out on loan to help further their football education if need be. Sir Alex said he would consider sending the pair on loan to another Premier League club and regular first team football would certainly be a huge benefit to them. I'm sure Rafael and Fabio will feature a lot during 2010/11, while Darron Gibson will be looking to build on a fantastic campaign last season. I really hope Kiko Macheda gets his chance - he looks to have something special about him.
