Manchester United are preparing for their pre-season tour of the United States, despite the World Cup still on.
Today saw the lads who weren’t involved with their respective countries over the summer make way back to Carrington to report to training, where the coaches aim to get all the players back into shape before the new season.
Anthony Martial was amongst those returning this week, with his future still up in the air.

He seemed to be in good spirits despite his agent previously admitting Martial wishes to leave Old Trafford in the coming weeks.
It’s not often you see Martial smiling, so is this a sign everything has been sorted and he’s about to stay at the club?

Time will tell.
And, due to the fact he wasn’t involved with France at the World Cup and got a good rest this summer, there’s every chance he’ll have more juice in the tank to push on next season and finally impress manager Jose Mourinho.
