MANCHESTER UNITED staff have reportedly had to cancel a baseball-watching trip.

That came after Erik ten Hag invited his players and backroom members to a last minute team dinner.

The Red Devils are currently on a pre-season tour of the United States.

And the Mirror claims some employees planned to whittle their time by watching the San Diego Padres baseball team in action on Friday night.

However, the evening was canceled when Ten Hag called an impromptu team dinner that all club staff had to attend.

The Dutchman insists everyone eats together on tour, even behind the scenes.

But a lucky few later managed to get away and see the end of the Padres’ 7-1 win over the Texas Rangers.

United are now flying from the Southern California city to Las Vegas, where they play Borussia Dortmund on Monday.

And Ten Hag are hoping to welcome Rasmus Hojlund to their group after inking a £72m deal for the Atalanta forward.

Hojlund is expected to sign a five-year deal at Old Trafford after his Italian club accepted an initial £64m offer with a further £8m in surcharges.


The Denmark international scored nine goals in Serie A last season.

And he will be United’s third major signing this summer after Mason Mount and Andre Onana.

Ten Hag could add a fourth new face, with Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat at the top of his wish list.
