Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has named five youngsters in his 27-man squad to tour the USA.

The Red Devils fly out to California on Sunday to start their pre-season preparations without Wayne Rooney, who has returned to Everton on a free transfer.

Meanwhile this list does not include Romelu Lukaku, with the Toffees striker expected to complete his deal to United in the coming days.

Lukaku is already in the United States with Paul Pogba, who he has been spending time with during the summer break.

The Belgium international has reportedly passed a medical in Los Angeles in time for the club’s arrival in the USA, where they will play LA Galaxy at the StubHub Center on July 15 in their first friendly.

Mourinho still has a couple of injury concerns from the back end of last season with Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, and Ashley Young continuing their rehabilitation from injuries.

The Red Devils will also come up against Real Salt Lake, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Valerenga and Sampdoria during their pre-season calendar.

United’s tour squad: Eric Bailly, Daley Blind, Michael Carrick, Matteo Darmian, David de Gea, Marouane Fellaini, Tim Fosu-Mensah, Ander Herrera, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Scott McTominay, Demetri Mitchell, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Andreas Pereira, Joel Pereira, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero, Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, Axel Tuanzebe, Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young.
