Manchester United will be up against Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona in the United States this summer as part of the International Champions Cup(ICC).

Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Roma and Tottenham will also take part in the tournament. The ICC recently unveiled a Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona in Miami.

Manchester United will play both the La Liga giants, starting with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real Madrid in Santa Clara, California, on July 23. In 2014, the two giants played in front of 109,000 fans in Michigan, with United winning 3-1.

Jose Mourinho’s boys will then travel east to face Lionel Messi’s Barcelona at FedEx Field outside of Washington on July 26. It will be the two teams’ first meeting since a 3-1 Man United win in the 2015 ICC.

The Red Devils will start their ICC schedule against Manchester City on July 20 at a venue still to be determined. The Premier League rivals had been scheduled to play each other last summer in China, but the friendly was canceled due to heavy rain.

Man City will be also up against Real Madrid at the Los Angeles Coliseum on July 26, before playing Tottenham three days later in Nashville, Tennessee. Elsewhere, Juventus and Barcelona will play out a rematch of their upcoming Champions League quarterfinal on July 22 in New Jersey.

The tournament schedule in the U.S. concludes with a matchup of Serie A rivals Juventus and Roma in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on July 30.

Before Manchester United begin International Champions Cup matches, they will also face two MLS teams, LA Galaxy and Real Salt Lake, at their respective home stadiums.
