Manchester United have dropped the squad for the remainder of the US tour, with one inclusion giving fans hope.

Kobbie Mainoo had to forcibly withdraw from Manchester United’s loss to Real Madrid on Thursday morning after just two minutes.

Following a collision with Los Blancos winger Rodrygo, Mainoo was helped off the field by medical staff while looking in pain.

He then was spotted post-game leaving with a protective boot on, plus crutches.

This was a sight absolutely nobody wanted to see, given how his emergence has occurred so far on tour.

United hint at Mainoo fitness

As Manchester United named their squad for the remainder of the US tour, one name has stood out to fans.

Mainoo was considered by many to have suffered a serious injury, however his continued inclusion in the squad has gave hope of a miraculous recovery.

Surely only a couple days left in the US, if he was sidelined for a long period he would be better heading back to Manchester with the other youngsters.

On the United website, it is recognised that as of yet, there is no update on Mainoo and it is unclear what his role in Las Vegas might be.

However his continuing involvement in the senior squad must count for something.

As fans hope he can recover quickly and continue his rapid development into a first team star.
