The likes of Bruno Fernandes, Casemiro, and Marcus Rashford were all pictured heading into Carrington on Saturday as they made their returns to the club for initial testing before getting stuck into the action.

United have been in training for over a week now, with their first game held last week as they beat Leeds 2-0 in Norway in their opening game of the summer.

Non-internationals such as Mason Mount, Raphael Varane, and Tom Heaton played in the game, which saw youngsters Noam Emeran and Joe Hugill net in the second half to give Erik ten Hag’s side the win.

The team will continue their pre-season campaign against Lyon on Wednesday before heading to the United States for games against Arsenal, Wrexham, Real Madrid, and Borussia Dortmund.

It’s a crucial period for the team as they look to build momentum ahead of the new Premier League season.

Fernandes was part of Portugal’s squad that beat Bosnia and Herzegovina and Iceland in their latest European qualifiers, scoring twice against the former.

Rashford, meanwhile, played half an hour in England’s 4-0 win over Malta and just under an hour of the 7-0 victory over North Macedonia, scoring on the stroke of half-time.

Casemiro played the full 90 minutes as Brazil beat Guinea 4-1 before being an unused substitute during his side’s 4-2 loss to Senegal in the middle of June.

Club captain Harry Maguire was also present, arriving in his Range Rover, as doubt continues over his future with the Red Devils.

Maguire played 90 minutes in both of England’s European qualifiers, but he is expected to play a minor role in United’s season as they look to continue to progress under Ten Hag following their return to Champions League football.

Maguire’s club and country teammate Luke Shaw was all smiles as he arrived at Carrington, while Christian Eriksen cut a more reserved figure as he walked into the complex. Also present for the first time were Tyrell Malacia and Diogo Dalot, who were with the Netherlands and Portugal respectively over the break.

It’s an exciting time for United fans, as they eagerly await the return of their international stars and the upcoming pre-season fixtures.
