Manchester United announced a five-city American tour this summer, as Jose Mourinho will bring the Red Devils ahead of a hopeful return to the UEFA Champions League.

Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Santa Clara and Washington are the cities in the press release, leaving one more to be announced. Utah will be a first for United.

United was whispered to be involved in an U.S. based Manchester Derby, so one of those markets could be in for a historic match. The MLS All Star Game is set for Aug. 2 in Chicago, and could be an option for United if it fails to qualify for the Community Shield (which is extremely, extremely unlikely).

The Red Devils didn’t hit our shores last summer after spending July of 2014 and 2015 in the States. In 2014, they faced Roma, LA Galaxy, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, and Liverpool. The following year: Club America, PSG, San Jose Earthquakes, Barcelona.
