Manchester United trio cut from tour squad as they jet off to China

Manchester United have announced the squad that will go on pre-season tour to China, and its a strong one. Now that the players are back from their international duties, the likes of Wayne Rooney, David de Gea and Chris Smalling are all back involved.

However, amongst the squad there were three notable absentees. Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Guillermo Varela and James Wilson.

First up, Borthwick-Jackson has been left out due to a groin strain that he reportedly picked up in training, and although the extent of the problem isn’t known, it’s a real shame for him.

Guillermo Varela is another full-back who’ll be remaining in England, but his case is different. He is thought to be one of the players Mourinho wants to ship out, and today, talk of a move to Eintracht Frankfurt is on the cards.

James Wilson is an odd one. Many thought that he could have a real impact this season, but it looks as though Mourinho isn’t a fan. Now reports suggest he could be on his way out of Old Trafford.
