Louis van Gaal names 25-man squad for Tour 2014

Louis van Gaal has named a 25-man Manchester United travelling squad for Tour 2014, presented by Aon.

As the boss explained during his unveiling press conference on Thursday, he is keen to assess every member of the current group during this summer's trip. Alongside the first team players, a host of young Reds will subsequently fly to the United States.

New signings Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw are also part of the travelling party, but Michael Carrick will unfortunately miss the trip following his ankle surgery.

The Reds will play four matches during Tour 2014, presented by Aon, beginning with a match against LA Galaxy in the Chevrolet Cup on 23 July. Further matches in the International Champions Cup will follow against AS Roma in Denver (26 July), Inter Milan in Washington DC (29 July) and Real Madrid in Ann Arbor (2 August).

Every tour match will be shown live on MUTV HD and you can also follow ManUtd.com's live tour blog from Saturday, bringing you news, photos and videos from inside the first-team camp. Please note that the squad numbers worn by each player on tour are not necessarily permanent for the new season.

Tour 2014 squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Amos, Johnstone, Rafael, Evans, Smalling, Jones, Shaw, Blackett, M Keane, James, Herrera, Cleverley, Fletcher, Young, Zaha, Kagawa, Mata, Valencia, Nani, Lingard, Welbeck, Rooney, W Keane.
