Jose Mourinho’s United and Pep Guardiola’s City will meet at Houston’s NRG Stadium on July 20 as part of the International Champions Cup friendly tournament.

They had been due to play each other in Beijing, China last year, but the game was called off due to concerns about the pitch.

«The Manchester derby is one of the world’s most iconic games,» said City chief executive Ferran Soriano in a press release.

«We are very excited to play it in front of our passionate American fans. There are so many great memories from this game in history and we can’t wait to create some new ones in Houston.»
