British media had reported the 29-year-old failed to get a US visa due to a 16-month suspended jail sentence imposed by a Spanish court in February for tax fraud.

United manager Jose Mourinho expressed concern over the forward’s exclusion earlier this week as it added to the club’s pre-season absentees, with several other international players missing as they rest following the World Cup.
