Pictures: Manchester United players on the way to China for pre-season tour

Manchester United Football Club are all set for their pre-season tour of China – and it’s set to be a real treat for the fans on that side of the world. The first game comes on Friday against Borussia Dortmund, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan to play his former teammates.

Today, the squad jetted off to begin the aforementioned tour, and the players looked in good spirits. It’s going to be a real test for both them and the manager, as they’ll look to take on Mourinho’s ideas and plans and adapt them into their games as quickly as possible.

That’s what this stage of the campaign is all about though, and although they’ll always have one eye on that opening game against Bournemouth in a month’s time, these fixtures building up to that are equally important.

There were a few notable absentees, though, with Guillermo Varela, James Wilson and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson all left at home.
