Man Utd summer tour: Fixture list and schedule announced by Premier League giants

Manchester United jet off around the world during the close season as they cash in on their worldwide popularity.

Last year they headed to the USA, but they are heading to the opposite side of the world in 2019.

They are heading to Australia, Singapore and China as they prepare for the new season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pencilled in to be their manager for the trip.

And two English clubs lie in wait for United on their tour.

They’ll play Premier League foes Tottenham and rivals Leeds, as well as local sides.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said: “These games, and the tour overall, will not only assist in our pre-season preparations, but also provide entertaining football and an opportunity to interact with our loyal fans in Australasia and Asia.

“This is will be our third visit to Singapore and our fifteenth pre-season visit to China and we’re excited to be returning to both countries to play against top-class opposition there.”

United will also play in the UK, with AC Milan their opponents at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on August 3.
