Manchester United Football Club are just hours away from kicking off their pre-season tour against Club America.
It has been far too long a wait without our Red Devils heroes, and this tour comes with intrigue aplenty; largely due to several key players missing due to World Cup participation, thus giving several youngsters a chance.
Manager Jose Mourinho has been putting his players through their paces for one final session before the game, those pictures were captured and published by United’s official Twitter feed as you can see below:

Amongst the players in training were Juan Mata. He’s got a hugely important role to play, particularly in the early-season, being one of only a few attackers who had the summer off.
There’s also an excellent opportunity for Andreas Pereira. The attacker has spent the last two years out on loan, and you feel the next twelve months is make or break for the young man.
Demetri Mitchell will also be hoping to get his chance. He enjoyed a brilliant loan spell with Hearts last term, and he’s already been handed a couple of appearances by Mourinho. I’m excited to see how he gets on over the next few months. He’s my outside shot to be a part of the first-team at some point this season.
