Manchester United fly more players to USA

Manchester United have already confirmed that Jonny Evans will be flying out for the Wrexham game, which was one of the reasons he re-signed on a short-term deal.

The club stated: “The centre-back will be in the squad to face Welsh outfit Wrexham in San Diego next week.”

The MEN provide an update, not naming Evans in their report, focusing on a further 10 youngsters who have already begun their journeys to the USA.

These include Sonny Aljofree, Marc Jurado, Toby Collyer, Isak Hansen-Aaroen, Toby Collyer, Maxi Oyedele, Shola Shoretire, Noam Emeran, Charlie McNeill, Joe Hugill.

All of the players have had some role in pre-season squads so far, with the exception of Charlie McNeill.

McNeill had been expected to head out on loan, however, United feel this friendly will be good experience before he does.
