Manchester United announced the squad list to travel to the USA this midday

There will be no Barcelona - Victor Valdés reencounter, at least this summer. Luis Enrique's team and Manchester United will face each other in the International Champions Cup, in the United States, on July 25, but the goalkeeper has been left out of Van Gaal's squad list, as announced by the club this afternoon.

The absence of Valdés has come by surprise, because with the possible departure of David de Gea to Real Madrid, everything pointed that the Catalan would struggle to become starter. Furthermore, the English club have not pointed any physical problem as the cause of absence. Goalkeepers for the tour then will be David De Gea, Anders Lindegaard and Sam Johnstone.

On the other hand, the brand new signing of United, Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has come this weekend from Guardiola's Bayern, has been included in the squad list. The veteran German has left the club where he has played all his life to live new experiences before retiring.

This is the full squad list:

  • Tyler Blackett
  • Daley Blind
  • Michael Carrick
  • Matteo Darmian
  • David De Gea
  • Memphis Depay
  • Jonny Evans
  • Marouane Fellaini
  • Sean Goss
  • Ander Herrera
  • Adnan Januzaj
  • Sam Johnstone
  • Phil Jones
  • Anders Lindegaard
  • Jesse Lingard
  • Juan Mata
  • Patrick McNair
  • Andreas Pereira
  • Wayne Rooney
  • Morgan Schneiderlin
  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
  • Luke Shaw
  • Chris Smalling
  • Antonio Valencia
  • James Wilson
