United have flown three promising starlets out to South Africa to join the senior squad for the remainder of the pre-season trip.

Midfielders Rodrigo Possebon and Tom Cleverley and defender Craig Cathcart have linked up with the first team party ahead of the Reds' final game in the Vodacom Challenge on Saturday afternoon in Tshwane and the friendly in Nigeria against Portsmouth on Sunday evening.

All three are Reserve team regulars with Possebon and Cathcart, both 19-years-old, also holding senior squad numbers.

Possebon joined the club in January 2008 from Brazil's Sporting Club Internacional, while both Cathcart and 18-year-old Cleverley signed in 2005.

It will be great to see Rodrigo in action. He should get some game time in
one of the games. Its great for the young players to hang out with and train
and even play with the first team squad.

I was hoping Possebon went initially because I really want to watch him along with Campbell because I believe them two have a future at United for sure. Evans and Gibson also look promising. I was disappointing when Possebon did not make the traveling squad so after reading this on manutd.com made me happy and I cannot wait to watch him.

Could someone tell me why Manucho did not make the team? What is the status with his work permit? I remember Dong playing in Asia tour without his work permit even! If we brought an African guy with us to Africa it would of boosted the shirt sales no? lol Nah I really want to see him play! He was assigned number 23 which was what I last heard last season and I even have an official picture of it but Gibson is wearing that number...usually the pre-season numbers are not set and like they usually do not wear the names with there t-shirts and anyone wears anyone's number but this season it is the real names and numbers so yeah...

He hasn't got his work permit yet but even if he had had wouldn't play because he has a broken metatarsel apparently.
