Man United have matches scheduled against Inter Milan (20 July), Tottenham (25 July) and AC Milan (3 August).
Paul Pogba is in the squad
Man United have confirmed that French World Cup winner Paul Pogba will be travelling with the squad this summer.
Rumours have been rife that Pogba wants to leave Old Trafford this summer. Juventus and Real Madrid have been linked with Pogba’s signature.
Indeed, over the weekend, some had questioned whether Pogba would show up on Sunday.
However, it’s now certain that Pogba will begin his summer back with Man United.
Paul Pogba & his team have been seriously considering snubbing Manchester United’s demand that he travels to Australia tomorrow, according to L’Équipe.
