After the Red Devils spent last summer touring around the United States, they are set to switch gears and travel to Australia and Asia to prepare for their pre-season.

United will get underway with a game at the home of Perth Glory on July 13, followed by a game against fellow English club Leeds at the same stadium.

They then jet off to Singapore, where they face off against Italian giants Inter at the Singapore National Stadium, followed by a match against Premier League rivals Tottenham in Shanghai.

The trip to Asia will be followed by a visit to Norway five days later for a game against Kristiansund, manager Solskjaer’s hometown club.

They then round off their preparations with an exhibition game against AC Milan in Cardiff, though their schedule could change or be added to depending on if they need to qualify for the Europa League following the FA Cup final.


Manchester United 2019-20 transfer activity


Manchester United fans have been pleading for a clear out of the squad, and Solskjaer has repeatedly suggested the club will sell players who don’t fit into his plans this summer.

Veteran wing-back Antonio Valencia’s departure was confirmed in April, while Juan Mata is expected to exit on free transfers due to expiring contracts. Ander Herrera was also announced to be leaving as a free agent in early May.

Expect to see Paul Pogba, Matteo Darmian and Alexis Sanchez linked with moves away from Old Trafford throughout the off-season as well following frustrating seasons.

As one of the richest clubs in the world, United have been linked with dozens of top-class players ahead of the transfer window including Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen, Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly.

Manchester United 2019-20 Premier League fixtures


United will discover their Premier League fixture list when the official details are released to all clubs at 9am BST on June 13.

Solskjaer disappointingly missed out on securing Champions League football for the club, though his side qualified for the 2019–20 Europa League due to their sixth-placed finish in the Premier League.

As Manchester City won the FA Cup, United will enter the competition in the group stage, which will begin in September.

The Carabao Cup will kick off for United in the first round beginning on August 3, with the full fixture list to be released on June 20. The FA Cup third round will get underway from all Premier League clubs at the start of January.
