Man United will take on Manchester City in the International Champions Cup at Beijing’s National Stadium on July 25th before facing Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai three days later.
The 48-second clip to promote the tour on United’s website included 14 members of the current squad and a number of former players but it did not include van Gaal.
Last year, the Dutchman was featured prominently in a similar promotion ahead of United’s tour of the USA.
Van Gaal has come under huge pressure following a string of disappointing results and performances from his side and numerous rumours have suggested that Jose Mourinho is set to replace him at the end of the campaign.
While it would be silly to read too much into his omission from the video, there has been a lot to suggest that he will exit the club this summer.
