United reveal 25-man tour squad

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 at Old Trafford on Thursday, he is keen to assess every member of the group during this summer's trip. A core of regular first-team players are joined by a host of younger Reds, as well as new signings Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw, but Michael Carrick will unfortunately miss the trip following his ankle surgery this week.

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'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 the players on tour will not necessarily be the same 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.
