Manchester United 2012 Tour

Manchester United have announced their full squad for the 2012 Tour. A mix of youth and experience, it will be an opportunity to see some real exciting players to get some game time.

The only first team players to travel are Lindegaard, Ferdinand, Valencia, Carrick, Scholes, Berbatov, Chicharito, Anderson and Macheda due to Euro 2012 and Olympic commitments. It has been confirmed that Rio Ferdinand will captain the squad.

For me, Davide Petrucci and Ryan Tunnicliffe are two to watch. The midfield duo, both extremely different in their style of play, offer United some central midfield options from within.

New signings Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell will also be on show for the first time as well as the returning Bebe after his eventual season on loan in Turkey.

Travelling squad: Lindegaard, Amos, Johnstone, Ferdinand, Veseli, Vermijl, Wootton, Blackett; Valencia, Anderson, Carrick, Scholes, Powell, Kagawa, Bebe, Tunnicliffe, Lingard, Brady, Petrucci; Berbatov, Chicharito, Macheda.
