thumbnail Hello,

No Wayne Rooney for Sir Alex Ferguson's side, but a host of experienced names including Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand feature, while Dimitar Berbatov and Bebe will also take part

New Manchester United signing Shinji Kagawa has been named as part of a strong squad for their pre-season tour of South Africa.

The summer capture from Borussia Dortmund features alongside fellow new recruit Nick Powell in a squad including the likes of Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick, Chicharito and Antonio Valencia.

But there is no sign of England internationals Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones and Ashley Young following their involvement in Euro 2012, while Chris Smalling continues his recovery from the groin injury that ruled him out of the competition.

Ryan Giggs and Tom Cleverley will take no part due to their involvement in the Team GB squad for the London 2012 Olympics.

Dimitar Berbatov, who is expected to leave Old Trafford this summer, is involved however, as is Bebe, who spent last season on loan at Besiktas but struggled.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side face AmaZulu and Ajax Cape Town in the coming week, before travelling to China to take on Didier Drogba's Shanghai Shenhua.

Manchester United pre-season tour squad: Anders Lindegaard, Ben Amos, Sam Johnstone, Rio Ferdinand, Frederic Veseli, Marnick Vermijl, Scott Wootton, Tyler Blackett; Antonio Valencia, Anderson, Michael Carrick, Paul Scholes, Nick Powell, Shinji Kagawa, Bebe, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Jesse Lingard, Robbie Brady, Davide Petrucci; Dimitar Berbatov, Chicharito, Federico Macheda.
