ManUtd.com's Nick Coppack (NC) and Gemma Thompson (GT) are travelling with the squad on Manchester United's DHL pre-season tour. Return here for regular updates and feel free to post your comments on our message board...
Thursday 26 July (all times are 2 hours ahead of UK and 5 behind China)
14:19 Sadly, I'm afraid it's time to bid you all goodbye. We're about to head to the tour's final event, a Hublot fashion show and dinner, before boarding a long flight bound for Manchester. We hope to have images from the fashion show on ManUtd.com later, but this is where Today In Shanghai ends. Of course, if you still can't get enough of the tour, make sure to tune into MUTV's Inside The Tour programme at 18:30 BST for plenty of footage filmed here in China, including the latest instalment of Rio Ferdinand's tour diary. Thanks very much for following the blog and keep an eye out for Today At Old Trafford, which will return later today. (NC, GT)
14:05 I swear I've just been sat in the biggest room in the world. It was massive and, what's more, packed to the hilt with United fans. There must have been almost 1500 supporters, all there to see Sir Alex and the team parade the Chevrolet Cup (secured with last night's 1-0 win against Shanghai Shenhua). The appetite in China for Manchester United is huge. (GT)
12:15 The Nike event was great fun for everybody involved. In fact, I've rarely seen the players enjoy something so much as when they got the chance to play a bit of football with the kids. It's easy to forget sometimes that football is meant to be fun and that's why Nike and Manchester United Soccer Schools are working hard here in China to coach
