Manchester United promote seven youngsters to pre season training

Jose Mourinho could take six Manchester United teenagers who have not played for the first-team on their pre-season tour of the United States.

As revealed by the MEN, 16-year-old Mason Greenwood and midfielder James Garner, 17, trained with the first-team on their first day back at the club's Carrington training complex on Wednesday.

Dutch winger Tahith Chong, 18, and RoShaun Williams, Ethan Hamilton and Joshua Bohui, all 19, were among the training squad and 17-year-old Angel Gomes, who has made two substitute appearances for United, also seems poised to travel to the States.

Mourinho's decision to promote strikers Greenwood and Bohui is mainly enforced by Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford's World Cup commitments, while Anthony Martial's agent said last month the Frenchman wants to leave United.

Bohui joined the club from Brentford in 2016 and the prolific Greenwood scored 17 goals in 17 starts for the Under-18s last year. Chong recovered superbly from a knee injury to claim the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year award last term while Gomes became the fourth youngest United player aged 16 years and 263 days against Crystal Palace 14 months ago.

Whalley Range lad Williams was named on the first-team bench by Louis van Gaal for cup ties against West Ham and Liverpool in March 2016. Scotland youth international Hamilton, whose contract extension was confirmed by the club on Wednesday, was among the substitutes for the FA Cup fifth round tie at Huddersfield in February.

New signings Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant met their new teammates yesterday but Sergio Romero was absent from any footage filmed during United's session.

Possible United pre-season tour squad

Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero, Joel Pereira, Lee Grant

Defenders: Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Diogo Dalot, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, RoShaun Williams, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, Axel Tuanzebe, Daley Blind, Demetri Mitchell, Luke Shaw

Midfielders: James Garner, Ander Herrera, Andreas Pereira, Scott McTominay, Ethan Hamilton

Forwards: Alexis Sanchez, Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, Joshua Bohui
