The Red Devils won the tournament beating north-west rivals Liverpool 3-1 in the final, with goals from Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard. The Manchester side beat Real Madrid the same score in front of 109,318 spectators at the Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan, becoming the largest attendance ever recorded at an American soccer game.

United boss Louis van Gaal will be delighted with only a 12 day tour of the country following their mammoth journey around the USA last season.

The tour saw the team play in Colorado, Maryland, Michigan and Florida but this year's trip will see United stay at a base camp commuting to nearby stadiums and will be a week shorter.
