PICTURE: After Maradona, United players meet ex-Real Madrid star in Dubai

Manchester United 3

Manchester United players bumped into another former star during their trip to Dubai.



Manchester United's players seem to have enjoyed themselves during their warm weather training in Dubai. Juan Mata has recently written about his experiences and how they have helped him bond further with the team, while pictures of the players with Diego Maradona have also been doing the rounds on social media.

But the former Argentina international was not the only ex-player United's men met on their travels.

Ex-Real Madrid star Michel Salgado has tweeted a selection of pictures of himself and his young family with the likes of Mata, David de Gea, Wayne Rooney and Tom Cleverley.

While David Moyes' players had travelled in order to complete some training in more hospitable conditions, it is clear they have also enjoyed themselves, and this experience may just see them return more focused than ever on securing a top-four finish - no matter how unlikely it may currently seem.
