Manchester United are currently passing their offseason time with a little tour of Asia and Australia.

This jet-set group is in the transition between the two continents, as it heads to Nissan Stadium in Yokohama, Japan, for a July 23 date against the Yokohama F-Marinos.

There is a good chance the Red Devils will be jet-lagged for this game. After all, if you'll notice the date from the club's tweet below, they aren't getting a lot of time off. 

Don't feel too bad for these guys, though. It's not like this trip has been all work:

I don't know if the Red Devils will be bringing their surfboards with them to Yokohama, but they better bring their cleats. 

Check out the vitals for this match, and then I'll take a look at three players worth keeping an eye on during this friendly. 


When: July 23 at 6:15 a.m. ET, 11:15 a.m. BST

Where: Nissan Stadium in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan

TV: Fox Soccer Channel, Fox Deportes

Wilfried Zaha

As the Telegraph's Jason Burt passes along, Wilfried Zaha earned a nice review from manager David Moyes following his first start for the Red Devils in Australia. 

Zaha must continue to impress. The 20-year-old's talent is unquestioned. However, his maturity is another story. To help him in that regard, Moyes has stuck Zaha next to stalwart Ryan Giggs in the changing room at the training grounds, per Burt.

As Burt also notes, Moyes plans on keeping Zaha with the club until sending him out on loan in January. This allows Zaha a limited time to make a big impression.

He is certainly capable of doing just that. Now let's see if he can rise up to the challenge.


Adnan Januzaj

Adnan Januzaj is an exciting young talent, and players like him are one of the big reasons why friendlies like these can be so fun; it gives everyone a chance to see a glimpse of the future. 

Moyes certainly seems to understand this:

It is no surprise that Moyes would mention the 18-year-old Belgian. He has been taking his early opportunities to showcase his prodigious talent. 

If Januzaj continues to develop at such a rapid rate, he has a chance to be a huge part of not only the Red Devils' future, but also their present. 


Danny Welbeck

With Wayne Rooney sitting on the sidelines while dealing with a hamstring injury, per the BBC, and also being embroiled in endless transfer talk, Danny Welbeck is presented with a big opportunity to impress. 

Welbeck needs to do just that. He scored just twice in 40 games for the Red Devils last year, but he looks determined to return to form this year. 

Against the A-League All-Stars in Australia, Welbeck was excellent while earning a brace. 

This is a big opportunity for the 22-year-old to inspire confidence in his new manager and secure more playing time in the process.
