Manchester United squad hold first training session in Los Angeles

18 July 2018

Alexis Sánchez was forced to miss the start of Manchester United's summer tour of the United States due to a "personal administrative issue", though the club hope he can join José Mourinho's squad at some point in the 15-day trip.

The United squad is now training at the UCLA sports facilities.

Jose Mourinho's men will then play a further friendly against Major League Soccer side San Jose Earthquakes before facing AC Milan, Liverpool and Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup tournament.

Jose Mourinho looks on as Ander Herrera, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata get into their drills.

On the other hand, new arrivals Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant are in the squad in America, while Brazil's Fred is having some time off after sitting on the bench for the South Americans in Russian Federation.

Luke Shaw is prepared to walk away from Manchester United on a free transfer next summer if his first-team prospects at Old Trafford do not improve, sources have told ESPN FC.

Defender Chris Smalling hops over the mini hurdles during warm up during training.

The problem could be related to a conviction for tax fraud that Sanchez accepted in February, in which the forward accepted a 16-month suspended jail sentence in a deal with prosectors that saw him avoid spending any time in prison.
