Manchester United will travel to America for their pre-season tour this summer, as confirmed by the club's official Twitter account. United face Club America of Mexico in Seattle on July 17 and then play San Jose Earthquakes on July 21.
Four days later, the Red Devils will then travel to Santa Clara for a showdown with Champions League semi-finalists Barcelona. The game will take place at the brand new 68,500 capacity Levi's Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers.
United finish their tour of the USA in Chicago on July 29 against Paris Saint Germain. United are returning stateside for the second season in a row, having competed in the Guinness International Champions Cup last year.
The Red Devils won the tournament beating north-west rivals Liverpool 3-1 in the final, with goals from Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard. The Manchester side beat Real Madrid the same score in front of 109,318 spectators at the Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan, becoming the largest attendance ever recorded at an American soccer game.
United boss Louis van Gaal will be delighted with only a 12 day tour of the country following their mammoth journey around the USA last season.
The tour saw the team play in Colorado, Maryland, Michigan and Florida but this year's trip will see United stay at a base camp commuting to nearby stadiums and will be a week shorter.
