Only one new addition, Dutch left-back Tyrell Malacia, who joined from Feyenoord for £14.6 million, boarded the plane to Thailand.
United is still negotiating with Barcelona to sign Frenkie de Jong, has made a £43 million approach for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez, and is expected to sign free agent Christian Eriksen after the Dane verbally agreed to join the club.
Ronaldo has not traveled after being granted more time off to deal with a “family matter.” The Portuguese star wants to leave United if a decent offer comes in for him this summer.
Other first-team players who will miss the tour include Ronaldo, Phil Jones, Brandon Williams, and Andreas Pereira.
Williams will remain in the UK and train at Carrington as he recovers from a minor injury, while Jones will participate in a specialized pre-season program in an effort to avoid injuries during the 2022-2023 season.
Pereira has also been given some time off after his loan spell with Flamengo last season. The Brazilian has agreed to join Premier League side Fulham in a £10 million deal.
The traveling group includes a number of seasoned players, such as Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes, as well as a slew of young players aiming to make an impression.
Alejandro Garnacho, Zidane Iqbal, and Charlie Savage have all made the trip after making their senior debuts last season.
