Ander Herrera and Marcus Rashford both looked to be in good spirits as Manchester United prepared for their flight to China for their pre-season tour.

The Manchester United duo were joined by Jesse Lingard and Marcos Rojo as Jose Mourinho and his squad hopped on the plane to continue their pre-season preparations.

Rashford had been given an extended summer holiday following his involvement in Euro 2016 with England but has now linked up with his team-mates for his first taste of life under new manager Mourinho.

And the United squad looked to be in high spirits as they posed for a picture on the plane before their long-haul flight.

Herrera posted the photo above on his personal Instagram account on Tuesday afternoon and wrote: “Off to China.”

United moved quickly to appoint Mourinho as the club’s new manager after their disappointing fifth-placed finish under Louis van Gaal last season.
