As Erik ten Hag assesses his squad options in the coming weeks, the Red Devils will compete in eight preseason fixtures before returning to the Premier League.
He is expected to be busy in the summer transfer window, with England star Mason Mount already arriving at Old Trafford and Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana emerging as a possible replacement for David de Gea.
