Manchester United look set to play Premier League rivals Manchester City in a "derby" in Beijing in July after announcing on Tuesday an eight-day pre-season tour of China.

Dates and venues for matches have yet to be revealed, but it is understood City, who will be managed by new boss Pep Guardiola - and United - who coud be led by Jose Mourinho - will meet in the Chinese capital in late July.

"A total of nearly 500,000 supporters have attended previous games during our visits to China and we have always enjoyed exceptional support in the country, so naturally it is something that everybody is very much looking forward to this summer". However, there are no details yet released regarding the matches for the football club.

Earlier this year, Jiangsu Suning paid £25 million and £38 million for Chelsea's Ramires and Shakhtar Donetsk's Alex Teixeira, respectively, while perennial champions Guangzhou Evergrande splurged £31.8 million on Atletico Madrid's Jackson Martinez.

After losing four and winning just one of the last six league games and with Champions League quarter finals against Paris Saint-Germain sure to represent a distraction, the Citizens have gone from 1/5 (1.20) to 1/2 (1.50) to finish in the top four.

City are also touring China and so could face United there.

Manchester United have made nine more trips to China since their first visit in 1975, and were last in the Asian country ahead of the 2013/14 season, when David Moyes was the manager.
