AIK Fotboll v Man United

Manchester United will be looking to close their pre-season tour with the right result when they take on AIK Fotboll in Stockholm on Tuesday.

The Red Devils will face the Swedish side at the Friends Arena in midweek in their final off-season friendly outside of England, although David Moyes' men will still take part in another practice game this week, against Sevilla in what will be Rio Ferdinand's testimonial match.

United flew out from Manchester on Monday without wantaway striker Wayne Rooney, although the club insist it is a shoulder injury, and not his proposed move to Chelsea, that has kept the England international at Old Trafford.

Despite the forward's absence, Moyes has taken an almost full-strength squad to Sweden, while youngsters Bebe and Angelo Henriquez could also get the chance to impress.

Last season's Golden Boot winner Robin van Persie is set to lead the line up front as the defending Premier League champions gear up for the FA Community Shield against Wigan at Wembley on Sunday.

Fellow striker Javier Hernandez, though, has not traveled with the team, suggesting the Mexico international could in fact be heading away from the club in the off-season as has previously been reported.
