Reds name tour squad

United will take a 21-man squad to the United States on Monday with six other players set to join the pre-season tour at a later date.

Summer signing Ashley Young will fly out in the initial squad, but other new acquisitions David de Gea and Phil Jones will link up later due to their extended seasons with Spain and England respectively at the recent Under-21 European Championships. The trio's squad numbers for the tour will be as follows - de Gea 1, Jones 4 and Young 18. However fans should note that as these numbers have not yet been registered with the Premier League, they could change for the season.

The Tour 2011 squad is provisional, subject to change in the event of training injuries:

Goalkeepers: Anders Lindegaard, Ben Amos, Sam Johnstone
Defenders: Rafael, Fabio, Nemanja Vidic, Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand
Midfielders: Michael Carrick, Nani, Anderson, Ryan Giggs, Ji-sung Park, Gabriel Obertan
Forwards: Mame Biram Diouf, Federico Macheda, Wayne Rooney, Michael Owen, Dimitar Berbatov, Ashley Young.

The following players will join the tour after their agreed leave time: Chris Smalling, Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley, David de Gea, Phil Jones, Javier Hernandez.

United will play five matches in the US, starting with New England Revolution in Boston on Wednesday night, 13 July. Every game will be live on MUTV and MUTV Online, and's Nick Coppack and Gemma Thompson will be blogging from Monday night UK.
