Manchester United will play two friendly matches in Spain ahead of the return of club action and a number of first team players will miss the games.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has revealed the squad he travelled with to Spain ahead of their two friendly matches against Cadiz and Real Betis.

Man United, among other European clubs, have begun preparation ahead of the return of club action in two weeks time.

The Red Devils will face Cadiz on December 7 and three days later, they will take on Real Betis before returning to Manchester ahead of what would be their first game since November against Burnley in the round of 16 of the Carabao Cup on December 21.

Ten Hag would be without Jadon Sancho in the team because the former Dortmund winger has decided to continue his individual training programme as part of a process to get back to his highest level. 

Axel Tuanzebe wasn’t part of the travelling squad and stayed behind at Carrington to continue his personal training programme as he recovers from injury. 

Manchester United’s travelling squad to Spain

De Gea, Heaton, Bishop, Dubravka, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka, Williams, Mengi, Bernard, Jurado, Hardley, Bennett, Oyedele, Murray, Fredricson, Van de Beek, McTominay, Savage, Iqbal, Hansen, Gore, Mainoo, Martial, Elanga, Shoretire, Garnacho, Hugill, McNeill, Emeran.

Christian Eriksen and Hannibal Mejbri weren’t part of the squad, although their countries crashed out of the group stage in the ongoing World Cup in Qatar.
