Johannesburg - Manchester United will travel to South Africa with a mix of youth and experience as they prepare for games against AmaZulu and Ajax Cape Town.

The Red Devils will arrive in Durban on Monday ahead of their opening tour clash against Usuthu on Wednesday, after which they will travel to the Mother City to face the Urban Warriors.
