Manchester United ended their USA tour with a 2-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester United started the match as the better squad but couldn't capitalize on their chances and saw PSG take the lead from Blaise Matuidi. Zlatan Ibrahimovic made it 2-0 ten minutes before half-time and Louis van Gaal's side never recovered. Manchester United were aiming for a perfect record in the International Champions Cup after they defeated Club America, San Jose Earthquakes, and Barcelona in their first three matches, but they'll have to go home with a loss now. They open up the season against Tottenham on August 8th.

Manchester United have signed Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

It seems the Red Devils are getting ready to part ways with David de Gea as they've reached a deal with Romero, who is a free-agent. The 28-year-old goalkeeper has played in Europe before when he won the Eredivisie with AZ Alkmaar in 2009. Reports are suggesting that Romero is signed strictly as a backup and United will try to sign a new goalkeeper if de Gea does indeed leave for Real Madrid, but Romero is likely good enough to fill in the starting role if United can't sign another goalkeeper. If he finds himself with the starting goalkeeper role, he immediately becomes a top fantasy choice at goalkeeper.

Wayne Rooney, Jesse Lingard and Adnan Januzaj all scored for Manchester United as the Red Devils overcame Barcelona in Levi's Stadium in pre-season action.

The Red Devils were on top early through a well-taken 8th minute Rooney header from an Ashley Young service. Luis Suarez hit the post before Lingard and Januzaj scored in the second half to salt the win away for Louis Van Gaal's side. In-between Lingard and Januzaj's goals, Rafinha scored a great goal for Barcelona. The other promising note for United supporters was the presence of David De Gea in goal for the first time this pre-season. It could mean nothing or it could signal that he will stay at United and run out his contract rather than leaving for Real Madrid this summer.

Manchester United starters vs. Barcelona De Gea, Darmian, Jones, Blind, Shaw, Carrick, Schneiderlin, Mata, Young, Memphis, Rooney

There isn't a lot of surprise here for the pre-season tilt against reigning Champions League winners Barcelona at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Bastian Schweinsteiger is out with a minor knock but it isn't a serious thing and shouldn't prevent him from starting the season contributing at Old Trafford. The other major battle is between Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian at right back. Darmian gets the start against Barcelona and likely for the first few weeks of the season at least with Valencia recovering from ankle surgery.

With Victor Valdes having fallen out with Louis Van Gaal, Manchester United are on the verge of signing his replacement in the form of Argentina international Sergio Romero.

Romero, a free agent this summer after spending last season at Sampdoria, joins a cloudy goalkeeping situation at Manchester United. The David De Gea situation is yet to be resolved. Romero doesn't appear to have the credentials to be Manchester United's number one so this signing should only be viewed as Louis Van Gaal replacing a back-up goalkeeper he can't work with for one who he, presumably, can work with.

Mexico qualified for the Gold Cup Final after a series of controversial calls by referee Mark Geiger.

Mexico defeated Panama 2-1 in the semi-finals but this one will be questioned by many. Mark Geiger gave Luis Tejada a red card in the first half that was certainly not deserved and that wasn't even the worst call of the match. Panama went on to go up 1-0 and then in the 89th minute, Geiger gave Mexico a very controversial penalty that let them equalize. He gave them another penalty in over-time to seal the deal, and ended up being rushed by Panama's player after the last whistle. There will be players suspended after a number of players from both teams participated in some shoving and punching throughout the game.

Juan Mata scored the opening goal and was sharp throughout his shift as Manchester United played to a 1-3 win against San Jose Earthquakes.

Mata's strike came in the 32nd minute as he tucked a shot into the far corner from just inside the area, though Memphis Depay nearly got a toe to it before it passed the keeper. Depay would get his just a few minutes later, scoring a gift after a turnover by an Earthquake defender deep in his own end. San Jose got on the board near halftime but United got the two goal advantage back for good thanks to a score from exciting prospect Andreas Pereira. Mata is looking poised for a fantasy season that resembles his better days with Chelsea. He should be rising on draft boards and a popular pick for United coverage in the FPL format.

Manchester United won their pre-season curtain raiser against Mexican side America thanks to a goal by new midfield signing Morgan Schneiderlin just 5 minutes into his debut. However the games main talking point came before kick-off as David De Gea watched on from the stands.

However post-match Louis van Gaal revealed that the Real Madrid target was not risked along with team mate Antonio Valencia due to a "minor injury" while Marouane Fellaini also sat out of the match at CenturyLink Field. The Belgium international will serve a 3 match suspension starting in GW1 "so he has a longer time to prepare himself and I need to see other players." Summer signings Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Memphis Depay were involved playing 45 minutes a piece.

Jonny Evans is reportedly getting close to an £8million move from Manchester United to Everton.

With only a year to go on his contract and having seen Manchester United sign Phil Jones and Chris Smalling to long-term extensions, Jonny Evans has seen the writing on the wall. The move to Everton, where Phil Jagielka is aging and Sylvain Distin has left, makes sense even if the £8million fee seems a little steep for a player who could leave for free next summer and clearly isn't part of the long term plan. This deal seems likely to close in fairly short order.

Southampton are moving closer to a move for Jordy Clasie that has been widely rumored since Morgan Schneiderlin made his intention to leave this summer known.

Ronald Koeman has been linked to the Eredivisie star for a year or more with the knowledge that Morgan Schneiderlin's time at St. Mary's was short. With Schneiderlin now at Manchester United, the inevitable seems like it is coming to pass. The 24-year-old Clasie will join Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum as high profile imports from Holland's first tier. Clasie, like Schneiderlin, is a holding midfielder who is equally adept at covering the back four and igniting the attack with an incisive pass. It might take him a little time to adapt but expect the Saints to continue their recent tradition of playing the transfer market well and backfilling leaving stars with similar talent for less money.

Manchester United today confirmed that Morgan Schneiderlin had signed a 4-year deal while an announcement quickly followed revealing that Bastian Schweinsteiger had also joined the club for the next 3-years.

The double signing was officially made public moments before United confirmed their US tour squad which included both players plus summer signings Memphis Depay and Matteo Darmian. Schneiderlin ends a 7-year association with Southampton "He's a very talented player with great energy and ability. His skills will complement our players" said Louis van Gaal. Schweinsteiger spent 13 seasons at Bayern and arrives with a wealth of domestic, European and international experience "Manchester United is the only club I would have left Munich for" confirmed the German captain at his press conference. If anyone did harbour any lingering doubts about Uniteds’ title credentials then this latest move represents a real statement of intent.

Manchester United have confirmed the move of Morgan Schneiderlin to the Old Trafford club from Southampton.

It has been a big few days for Manchester United with the arrivals of Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and now Morgan Schneiderlin. With Manchester United supporters surely getting nervous about the number of departures from Old Trafford the boost in the form of big names will be welcomed. United had a gap at the base of their midfield last season when Michael Carrick wasn't available and they have doubled down on a solution with the twin arrivals of Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin. One thing for sure is that United will have a strong option in the holding role each and every weekend.

Morgan Schneiderlin has reportedly signed for Manchester United today despite the arrival of Bastian Schweinsteiger making him seemingly redundant.

It's going to be a crowded central midfield at Old Trafford with Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin joining Michael Carrick (when healthy) and Ander Herrera who came on strong at the end of last season. Unless Louis Van Gaal plans on moving Schweinsteiger back to his original wing position (unlikely) there is going to be an expensive central midfielder or two on the bench every week.

Fenerbahce Chairman Aziz Yildirim has declared the capture of Robin van Persie from Manchester United to be final.

Neither club has confirmed the deal through any official club communication channel but the word of the club chairman is good enough for us. We'll excuse Manchester United if their focus is elsewhere today with the signing of Bastian Schweinsteiger. The departure of van Persie leaves United a little thin in the out-and-out forward department so expect more work to be done in the near future.

Manchester United have officially confirmed that German international Bastian Schweinsteiger will join them from Bayern Munich.

With Michael Carrick's health a cause for concern, Manchester United needed to fortify their deep-lying midfield and they have done so in style with the acquisition of Schweinsteiger. The World Cup winner is not only an exceptional talent but, as an added bonus, is familiar with Louis Van Gaal and the way he wants to play from their time together at Bayern. The shelf life on Schweinsteiger as a top level first team player may only be 3 or 4 years and he may have little sell-on value after that but in terms of improving the squad for the next few seasons, this is an excellent move.
