Rooney cuts short summer break for Man Utd preseason

Wayne Rooney is cutting short his summer break to return to Manchester United for preseason.

The Daily Mail says United have confirmed that Rooney and England's other World Cup stars will join the club's tour party to America next week after new manager Louis van Gaal cut short their summer holidays.

United's players have been used to a month's rest after major tournaments in the past, but the club are sticking to the three-week break stipulated in their contracts to ensure the majority of their big names are on show in the USA.

Van Gaal is anxious to have all the players together as soon as possible so he can start working with his new squad, and United are also mindful of their commercial obligations as they begin a £326million seven-year shirt sponsorship with American car giant Chevrolet.
