  • Manchester United

As Jose Mourinho talked Man United out of a top four spot, Janusz Michallik breaks down their Europa League chances.

Manchester United have confirmed details for a summer friendly at Dublin's Aviva Stadium on August 2nd.

United face games against Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid during their pre-season tour of the USA in July and face Valerenga in Oslo three days before they play here.

They are then set to head to Norway to face Valerenga in Oslo at the end of July.

'The pre-season programme has been put together to ensure the manager and his squad have a great platform to prepare for next season with games against top class opposition'.

This summer's tour is in stark contrast to Mourinho's first as manager a year ago.

Europa League finalists Manchester United are to play in Dublin this summer, the club have announced.

A planned Manchester derby against Pep Guardiola's City in Beijing was cancelled after heavy rain made the pitch at the Bird's Nest Stadium unplayable.

The club typically holds the last pre-season game of each summer at Old Trafford as a kind of unofficial "curtain raiser" for the campaign ahead, and no such fixture is yet on the schedule.

The FAI had been teasing an announcement of an global club friendly taking place in the city this season, and the Premier League side let the cat out of the bag on Monday morning.

Richard Endersen, CEO of Aon Risk Solutions Ireland, said: "Every day, in Ireland and around the world, Aon works with organisations including Manchester United to empower results by reducing volatility and finding opportunities to improve performance".
