A number of Manchester United's players returned to Carrington last week for pre-season training.

The likes of Lisandro Martinez, Donny van de Beek and new signing Mason Mount were pleasant sights for Reds fans, with our first pre-season fixture - against Leeds United in Oslo - now just two days away.

But other United players, who represented their nations in international fixtures following the conclusion of the domestic season, are yet to return.

This hasn't stopped the likes of Harry Maguire, Diogo Dalot, Marcus Rashford and Tyrell Malacia, however, posting on social media to show they are hard at work ahead of the beginning of their pre-season preparations.

United captain Maguire has been training in Portugal with Dalot, and shared images of his sessions on Instagram.

"No limits, no excuses," wrote the centre-back, alongside a selection of pictures of both out on the pitch and in the gym.

One of the images featured legendary former Chelsea and Portugal centre-back, Ricardo Carvalho. Both Dalot and Maguire were put through their paces alongside the ex-Premier League defender, ready for when they return to Carrington for pre-season preparations.

Rashford has been enjoying some downtime in the United States - the destination for our Tour 2023 - but shared images of him working in the gym and on the track.

"BACK AT IT" was the caption that accompanied the photographs, as Marcus looks to build upon his career-best 30-goal season last year.

Malacia, like Rashford, has been doing a combination of weight and track work, as he aims to kick on in his second season at United.

The Dutch defender shared images of his workouts on Instagram, alongside the caption: "The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me."

United team-mate Bruno Fernandes jokingly replied with the message: "I will stop you," while Malacia has set the location of his workout to 'Work Work Work'.

Tyrell Malacia is about to embark on his second season as a Red.

Young winger Facundo Pellistri was one of several Reds who shared their hard work on social media last week and he continued to do so on Sunday.

The Uruguay international uploaded images of him visibly out of breath and sweating after a tough workout in Benito Juarez, Mexico.

The accompanying caption read: "keep working…"
