Manchester United stars touch down in Perth as Paul Pogba and co begin pre-season tour of Australia, China and Singapore after 19-hour flight

Manchester United have touched down in Perth for the first stop of their pre-season tour to Australia, China and Singapore.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad were pictured stepping off the plane after their 19-hour flight to the other side of the world.

Paul Pogba, whose presence on tour was in doubt following his desire to leave the club this summer, was seen stepping into the team's hotel wearing a pair of headphones.

United officials were unsure if Pogba would report back after his agent Mino Raiola confirmed that the club's record £89million signing wants to leave Old Trafford amid interest from Real Madrid and Juventus.

Pogba's team-mates, who have been back in training for the last week, were also waiting to see if the Frenchman would return after he messaged some of them on Friday insisting that he wouldn't be going on tour.

But United confirmed on Sunday morning that Pogba was in the travelling party for their tour of Australia, Singapore and China.

Solskjaer is expected to hold talks with the player during United's training camp in Perth this week as Pogba's future continues to hang in the balance.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka had time to get to know his new team-mate during the long trip to Western Australia as he embarked on his first pre-season tour with United.

The likes of Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford were also seen emerging from the plane with the former carrying a little ball that could have provided hours of entertainment for the players.
