Barcelona to Play Manchester United in Summer Match

The top team in the England Premier League will play against the top team in the Spanish Football League - La Liga - this summer as Manchester United takes on Barcelona.

Sir Alex Ferguson's men are scheduled to meet the Spanish champions on July 30 at FedExField in the US capital in their final game of a five-match tour which includes three Major League Soccer sides as well as an All-Star team.

''Tours are a fantastic chance for the players to get away as a unit, to put in some good training sessions and to meet some of our fans around the world who don't have a chance to watch us play live every week,'' said Ferguson.

''Our visits to the US are always enjoyable ones. The training facilities are excellent and we certainly found last year that, with the improving quality of the MLS teams, the games are very competitive, which is great preparation for a new season.

''To finish off with a match against Barcelona will be a special moment for all our fans in the States.''

United open against New England Revolution on July 13 in Boston before travelling west to meet Seattle Sounders a week later. Next comes a game against Chicago Fire on July 23 before they take on the MLS All-Stars in New Jersey on July 27 and Barca in Washington.
