David de Gea and Javier Hernandez all smiles in training

The futures of both David de Gea and Javier Hernandez are in limbo at the moment but the speculation is not stopping them from enjoying training with Manchester United during the pre-season tour of the United States.

De Gea has been linked with Real Madrid all summer but speculation has died down in recent weeks for a number of reasons.

Man United wanted Sergio Ramos in return for the Spaniard but they now appear to have given up on the centre-back as he looks set to sign a new contract at Real Madrid.

United are said to be willing to let De Gea leave for free next summer as a response to Madrid not allowing Ramos leave.

Sergio Romero has signed for the club but it appears that the Argentinian goalkeeper will be used solely in a backup role to De Gea, who is United’s undisputed No.1.

Hernandez, who spent time at Madrid on loan last term, may benefit from a lack of strikers available to Louis van Gaal at present. He is reportedly the subject of interest from Sevilla but he fractured his right collarbone with Mexico in the Gold Cup at the beginning of the month and teams are unwilling to put a bid in for a player with an injury of such an unpredictable nature.
