PICTURE: Louis van Gaal takes United training in Los Angeles

Manchester United today have completed their first pre-season training over in Los Angeles as they prepare for a busy tour period in the USA, starting with a fixture against LA Galaxy on the 23rd July.

Louis van Gaal watched on from the sidelines during the training session, which mainly concentrated on fitness, but was ever present to lend some advice to his tour squad which include new signings Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera.

The club have a number of commercial ventures to complete over the tour period, up to 120 meetings and appearances before they return to Manchester to prepare for the start of the Premier League season, which they start with a home fixture against Swansea City.
