Manchester United have announced they will play Turkish side Galatasaray in an additional pre-season friendly in Gothenburg next month.

The fixture will be played at the Ullevi Stadium on July 30, after United return from their tour of China.

It will be United’s last overseas friendly of the summer before they face Everton in Wayne Rooney’s testimonial at Old Trafford on August 3.

The FA Cup winners then play Premier League champions Leicester in the Community Shield at Wembley on August 7.

During their time in China, United will play Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai (July 22) and Manchester City in Beijing (July 25) in the International Champions Cup.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said: “The team has a valuable combination of domestic and overseas games against tough European opposition.

“Playing games across a number of countries allows our tremendous fans the opportunity to watch the team play, and importantly the number of games allows the manager and team the best opportunity to prepare for the coming season.”
