Manchester United will face Barcelona in a pre-season friendly scheduled for July, 2011 in Washington DC, the Spanish club announced today.

The massive match between two of the biggest names in soccer will take place on July 30 as part of Barcelona and Manchester United’s 2011 summer tour of the United States. EPL Talk exclusively revealed, more than two weeks ago, that Manchester United was planning a 2011 pre-season tour. The Red Devils have been in discussions to play a friendly in Chicago at Wrigley Field as well as a potential friendly against the Portland Timbers in their refurbished stadium.

In addition to Barcelona facing Manchester United, the club announced two additional friendlies today:

  • August 3: Barcelona v AC Milan (Miami), and
  • August 6: Club America v Barcelona (Dallas).

Unfortunately, Barcelona is likely to be without forward Lionel Messi, right back Daniel Alves and midfielder Javier Mascherano because of the Copa America in Argentina, which ends July 24.
