Manchester City are set to return to pre-season later this month ahead of their planned pre-season tour of Asia.
It’s been nearly one month since Manchester City defeated Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League final, lifting the coveted European trophy for the first time and becoming just the second English team to complete the treble.
The time in between has been full of celebrations, vacations, international duties and even Weddings for some Manchester City’s stars, as player’s enjoy a period of rest following a gruelling campaign.
Yet with the upcoming campaign just over a month away, Pep Guardiola and his squad are due back for pre-season training in the coming weeks, with the 16th July being mooted as a potential return date for the treble-winners.
Their training will begin at the City Football Academy for a short period before the Sky Blues travel to Japan, where they are set to play friendly matches against the J League’s Yokohama F Marinos and the reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
Following two matches in the Japan National Stadium, the Cityzens are set to fly to South Korea, where they are scheduled to face Atletico Madrid to conclude their pre-season tour of East Asia.
City beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals this season and faced Atletico Madrid last year in a fiery European clash.
City begin their Premier League title defence away to Burnley on Friday 11th August, though will face Arsenal in the FA Community Shield at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 6th August, in the annual season curtain-raiser.
Manchester City will also be competing in the UEFA Super Cup in August, facing Sevilla in Athens, Greece.
