MANCHESTER UNITED stars Bruno Fernandes and David De Gea were spotted enjoying a fancy Italian lunch on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils were meant to play Preston in a pre-season friendly but it was cancelled after a coronavirus outbreak in the United camp.

Paul Pogba was also spotted at the restaurant wearing a hoodie but departed soon after

The club did not disclose which players – if any – have contracted the virus, but both parties preferred to take the safer option with the start of the season not far away.

But a gathering of the squad at Cibo restaurant on Saturday at least gives an indication into which players have not been forced to isolate.

De Gea and Fernandes were snapped leaving the restaurant alongside Spanish team-mate Juan Mata.

One photo also shows Tom Heaton greeting Fernandes on his way out, with several United players in attendance.

Paul Pogba – strongly linked him with a move to Paris Saint-Germain – also made a flying visit, arriving near the end of the meal before heading out the back door around 15 minutes later.

Cibo is the spot where Ed Woodward met Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in February 2019, as the club legend agreed to take the job as boss on a permanent basis.

Cibo only opened in late 2018 but has already become a regular haunt for players and club execs alike.

It appears to be liked by Solskjaer’s players too, with Victor Lindelof, Nemanja Matic and Andreas Pereira among the other stars joining for a spot of pizza or pasta.

The United squad will now prepare to take on Everton in their last pre-season friendly, with the club not anticipating any further disruption.
