Manchester United will head to Norway this summer for a pre-season clash with Valerenga.

Jose Mourinho's men are heading to the United States ahead of the 2017-18 campaign, with friendlies scheduled against LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

United's tour will continue in Scandinavia on July 30 as they take on Norwegian side Valerenga, who are managed by former Celtic boss Ronny Deila, at the 28,000-seater Ullevaal Stadium in Oslo.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said: "The team will have access to top class facilities and the number of games this summer ensures that the manager and squad have the best opportunity to prepare for the coming season.

"Playing games across a number of locations gives our unrivalled fans the opportunity to watch the team play, with the club being fortunate to have such fantastic support right across the world."
