It has been made clear by the Manchester United officials that all the star players of the team would be on the plane to USA in a few days’ time.
Earlier, it was believed that those Manchester United players who had been playing in the World Cup would be allowed to skip that pre season America tour, but, the new boss, Louis Van Gaal, has decided not to provide that allowance to anybody. He wants every member of the team together right since the start of the pre season.
The Red Devils have to play a total of 4 matches in USA. They would start their tour by facing the MLS side Los Angeles Galaxy on 23rd of this month and then, they would take on Roma, Internazionale and the Los Blancos respectively.
Some of the United players like Wayne Rooney, Chris Smalling etc. have returned from Brazil just about a couple of weeks ago. They must have been hoping for a break of one month, but, sadly for them, they are not going to get that.
Van Gaal himself is not going to go on holidays this summer. He has been in Brazil since the last few weeks with the Dutch team.
Once he gets free from there, he would fly straight to Manchester to take charge at Old Trafford. So, he is setting the example himself.
He is believed to be keen to live up to the faith shown in him by the Manchester United board. According to the reports, he had been asked by the club if he would be able to join immediately after the World Cup and his answer was yes. So, he is up for his new project and he wants the players to be up for it too.
It’s surely going to be an interesting season for United.
