Manchester United had already rolled out the red carpet for star summer signing Romelu Lukaku and they were at it again on Tuesday.

The Premier League giants had a proper taste of Hollywood after rubbing shoulders with some A-list celebrities.

In Los Angeles for the International Champions Cup, United – including former player Bojan Djordjic – bumped into WWE star-turned-actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

Standing almost two metres tall, The Rock would make a decent goalkeeper should David de Dea ever leave Old Trafford.

United midfielder Juan Mata was also snapped with award-winning actress Julia Roberts following training in the United States.

Roberts is a keen football fan, having been spotted at Old Trafford and Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu in recent months.
