Manchester United fans worldwide groaned at the news that Anderson and Bebe were going to partake in pre-season with the club so Louis van Gaal could see what he had to work with.
But the squad have just announced their squad for the tour of the US and neither player is on the list.
Others not included are the likes Van Persie, Januzaj and Fellaini, players who will be given an extended break due to their participation in the World Cup.
Patrice Evra’s absence from the list is because a move to Juventus is close to completion. But Anderson’s time at the club appears to be up and, not to be cruel, but he has been nothing less than a massive flop.
Bebe can also be labelled that but it appears as though loan spells have helped him achieve some potential and a move to Benfica is looking likely.
You can see the full squad in the tweet from United below and further down you can see reaction to the selection.

Anderson not going on #mufc tour as suspected. Curtains for him. Pound for pound (no jokes now) one of Ferguson’s worst ever buys (£25m!)

Players like Van Persie and Hernandez, whose teams got beyond group stages of the World Cup, will join up later.
