Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku have been included on Manchester United's pre-season tour of Australia, Singapore and China.
Question marks surround both players' Old Trafford futures with Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, declaring on Friday they were "in the process" of facilitating a move away from the club.
However, the France international has reported back to Carrington on Sunday ahead of United's 18-day pre-season trip.
Pogba had been given extra time off last week along with some of the other international players who featured in the Nations League finals and European Qualifiers in June.
Similarly, Belgium forward Lukaku, who has been heavily linked with a move to Italian side Inter Milan, is also on the plane, which left Manchester this afternoon.
It is understood both Matteo Darmian and Fred are absent from the 28-man party due to family reasons but will link up with the squad later in the tour.
Alexis Sanchez, who limped out of Chile's Copa America third-place play-off defeat to Argentina last night, is also missing but would not have been included anyway due to his international exertions.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken a host of young players on the trip, although there were notable absentees in the shape of defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah and goalkeeper Dean Henderson - the latter linked with a return to Sheffield United after a successful loan spell last season.
Solskjaer's side will take on Perth Glory and Leeds in Australia before continuing their pre-season tour against Inter Milan in Singapore and Tottenham in China.
Full Manchester United travelling tour squad list:
Goalkeepers: David de Gea, Lee Grant, Sergio Romero, Joel Pereira
Defenders: Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young, Diogo Dalot, Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Axel Tuanzebe
Midfielders: Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira, Dan James, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, James Garner, Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong
Forwards: Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood
