Manchester United are set to face National League side Wrexham as part of their US pre-season tour, according to Manchester Evening News.
The Red Devils have been frequent visitors to the United States over the past 20 years. They have made eight pre-season trips and they are set for another tour this summer.
This will be the club’s first visit of the country since 2018. United are yet to confirm the full schedule but they are expected to face Wrexham in San Diego on the 26th of July.
The Welsh outfit have made immense progress since their takeover by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. They could be playing in League Two next term.
Wrexham’s popularity has been ever-growing with their influence and a friendly against United in San Diego would be a big statement ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.
The Robins, who are aiming to end their 15-year spell outside of the Football League, have also invited Chelsea to play them during their United States pre-season tour.
Erik ten Hag will be eyeing another bright pre-season
United had a good pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia last summer. We saw glimpses of manager Erik ten Hag’s tactics during the four friendly matches.
Despite this, the club had a difficult start to the new season. It has to be blamed on the Glazers, who were not prepared to back with huge transfer funds until August.
The Red Devils made two key signings in Casemiro and Antony in the final weeks and both players have been instrumental in the club’s progress this campaign.
Ten Hag will be eyeing another bright pre-season this summer. The climate in the US is ideal for training. Hopefully, most of the signings will be made in advance.
