Manchester United is headed to Los Angeles to kick off their preseason tour. The Red Devils will begin play Saturday against the Galaxy at StubHub Center. From there, they will turn their attention toward the International Champions Cup.
Here is the roster for the tour. Players will likely be added as the tour progresses:
— Manchester United (@ManUtd) July 9, 2017
Galaxy forward Jack McBean was selected to this week’s MLS Team of the Week honors.
McBean, from Newport Beach, scored a pair of goals in the Galaxy’s 3-1 victory over Colorado last Wednesday. He also had four shots, with three on goal.
Saturday, McBean started and went 62 minutes in the 2-1 loss to Sporting Kansas City.

U.S. Men’s National Team coach Bruce Arena named his 23-man roster for the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup. The only Galaxy player selected was Gyasi Zardes.
Zardes started the 2017 year in the opening national team camp. He never played in the first two friendly games due to an injury.
The season hasn’t gone to plan for Zardes. He has played 12 games, started 11, but has yet to score a goal.
Zardes has made 31 appearances for the national team. He earned his first call-up in 2015.
Players began reporting Sunday.
Galaxy defender Nathan Smith could be hearing from the MLS Disciplinary Committee next week.
Smith received a yellow card for the foul here on Benny Feilhaber. Feilhaber had to be subbed off. Does this play warrant a suspension?

Galaxy midfielder Giovani dos Santos will be on quite the international run coming up.
