thumbnail Hello,

The Old Trafford captain will join the likes of Wayne Rooney, Ashley Young, Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand for a pre-season set of fixtures that include a clash against Barcelona

Nemanja Vidic has been included in Manchester United's 21-man squad for their pre-season European tour.

The Serbian defender and Old Trafford skipper has been out of action since sustaining a serious injury midway through last season.

The Premier League runners-up face Valerenga on Sunday then travel to Gothenburg for a clash with Barcelona on August 8 before finishing against Hannover 96 on August 11.

Other star names included in the Red Devils’ squad include Wayne Rooney, Ashley Young and Rio Ferdinand.

The 21 players make up a much stronger squad than the one which travelled to South Africa in July as the 2012-13 campaign creeps closer to its start.

Players that will not be travelling with Sir Alex Ferguson’s side include injured defenders Chris Smalling (foot) and Jonny Evans (ankle).

Team GB duo Ryan Giggs and Tom Cleverley and Brazil defender Rafael are also left out because of their continued participation in the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Full squad below:

Goalkeepers: De Gea, Lindegaard.

Defenders: Evra, Ferdinand, Jones, M Keane, Vidic.

Midfielders: Anderson, Carrick, Nani, Powell, Lingard, Scholes, Valencia, Young

Forwards: Berbatov, Hernandez, Kagawa, Macheda, Rooney, Welbeck.
