PICTURES: Manchester United Take A Stroll Down Los Angeles Beach

Manchester United left Manchester on Friday afternoon to embark on their pre-season tour of the USA, just days after Louis van Gaal had met his squad players for the first time.

The travelling squad left Manchester Airport at 3pm, flying direct into Los Angeles, and after a short drop off of suitcases, Louis van Gaal himself had taken the squad out for a walk down LA beach to stretch the legs after such a long flight.

Manchester United start their pre-season with a match against LA Galaxy in the early hours of the 24th July.

See pictures below of the squad as they walk in their club edition suits along the LA beach:
