Angel di Maria and Javier Hernandez have taken a big step towards staying at Manchester United beyond the end of the summer transfer window after their appearance on the club's pre-season tour of the United States was confirmed.

Di Maria, Hernandez and defender Marcos Rojo will travel to the US on 25 July and could feature on the club's final pre-season game against Paris Saint-Germain on 30 July.

United face Club America on 18 July, before coming up against San Jose Earthquakes on 22 July and Barcelona on 25 July. Louis van Gaal's side start their Premier League campaign against Tottenham Hotspur on 8 August.

Van Gaal has already confirmed that Spanish goalkeeper Victor Valdes will be leaving the club this summer.

The Daily Mail has reported that PSG are confident of signing Di Maria, whose late arrival on tour comes after he and Rojo helped Argentina to the Copa America final, just a year on from the winger's move to Old Trafford for a British record fee.

"We shall see," Van Gaal said of Di Maria's future. "In football it's a process and I have said that many times. It's not clear in one day. It's a process for Di Maria, for United and we shall see.

"For now he's still a member of United and he has told me he shall come on 25 July."

Meanwhile Hernandez, who spent last season on loan at Real Madrid, will be staying at United after the club rebuffed interest from West Ham United, according to The Metro.

Explaining his attacking dilemma last season, Van Gaal said: "At the time we had to decide which strikers we could have.

"We had: [Danny] Welbeck, Chicharito, [Robin] van Persie and [James] Wilson. Then I had to make a decision to let Welbeck and Chicharito go. We had also bought Falcao.

"So when you play a system with one or two strikers you can have too many strikers. You have to make decisions. One of those decisions was to let Chicharito go. But now he's coming back on 25 July."
