All three are yet to begin training and will be assessed at the start of next week, before it is decided whether or not they will travel to Thailand on Wednesday for the start of United's five-match summer programme.

Shinji Kagawa will not link up with his team-mates until United reach Japan on 21 July but Javier Hernandez will miss out completely.
