Many at United believe Tunnicliffe can follow them into the first team.
The youngster told manutd.com: "The most important thing for me about the tour is hopefully being able to put myself in the manager's thoughts. That’s my aim. Obviously there are a lot of top midfielders in front of me but it's up to me to show him what I can do.
"I've seen how Clevs [Tom Cleverley] and Welbs [Danny Welbeck] have done on past trips and how they progressed from there into the first-team squad and that's what I want to do. Seeing how well both of them have done gives all the young lads a big incentive because it shows that the manager is still willing to put youngsters in if they do well."
