City have announced they will feature alongside Balotelli's current club AC Milan in the four-team Audi Cup in Munich in July and August.

The controversial Balotelli left City in January after an eventful two-and-a-half-year spell at the Etihad Stadium.

Hosts Bayern Munich and Brazilian club Sao Paulo are the other clubs taking part in the competition, which will see games played at the Allianz Arena on July 31 and August 1.

City's chief commercial and operating officer Tom Glick said: "We are delighted to have been invited to take part in the Audi Cup and to be competing with some of the best teams in the world.

"This tournament forms a significant part of our pre-season preparations and we are very much looking forward to it."

Another former City player, Nigel de Jong, could be in action for Milan while Jerome Boateng, also once of the English side, now plays for Champions League finalists Bayern.

City are also due to take part in the Barclays Asia Trophy in Hong Kong in July, along with Tottenham, Sunderland and South China FC.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
