United named the 22 players who travel to Malaysia to begin United’s Asia tour. The fans, obviously, are interested mostly in the new signings and maybe some of the younger players and in a sense the list is disappointing.

Due to a minor injury, Gabriel Obertan won’t play in Asia while Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck both miss the trip. The first game of the tour will be played on Saturday against a Malaysian XI.

The squad: Edwin van der Sar, Tomasz Kuszczak, Ben Foster; Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand, Gary Neville, Wes Brown, John O`Shea, Fabio da Silva; Nani, Zoran Tosic, Darren Fletcher, Anderson, Darron Gibson, Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs; Michael Owen, Dimitar Berbatov, Federico Macheda, Wayne Rooney.
