Finalized : Manchester United set to return to the United States during 2018 summer

This will be the consecutive second season when Manchester United will return to the US.


Premier League giants Manchester United have now seemingly confirmed that they will make a return to the United States of America later this year as part of their summer tour and eventually compete in two big matches against the Major League Soccer’s San Jose Earthquakes and Mexico’s Club America.

This will mark United’s return to the US for the second straight summer and the fourth time they will travel around the country in the past five years, having also previously faced-off against The Earthquakes and Club America back in 2015.

However, as noted, United’s last match against San Jose Earthquakes three years ago was the initial opening of the MLS club’s 18,000-seat Avaya Stadium, but this year’s friendly between the two teams is currently scheduled to undergo on the 22nd of July at the much bigger 75,000 seater Levi’s Stadium in nearby Santa Clara, California, where The Red Devils faced Real Madrid last summer.

United’s initial kick-off to their summer tour of the US will begin with a friendly against Club America three days earlier at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, where Jose Mourinho’s will play for the first time and with the likes of Andrés Ibargüen, Oribe Peralta, and Jeremy Menez—who has previously played for Paris Saint Germain, AC Milan, and AS Roma—this will definitely turn out to be a very tricky fixture for The Red Devils.

Meanwhile, on the other hand, United’s clash against San Jose Earthquakes will also turn out to be another crafty fixture due to The Earthquakes’ strong resiliency and the presence of the likes of Magnus Eriksson, Chris Wondolowski, and Danny Hoesen will also play a huge factor during this fixture.

Additionally, it has also been reported that Jose Mourinho’s side is also expected to participate in the International Champions Cup, with three more games to follow in the month of July, despite the fact that the plans for the tournament haven’t been confirmed just yet.
