The English and European Champions return soon for pre-season

Manchester City make their return for pre-season training on Monday 17th July.

Following their well deserved summer break, the Boys in Blue will return training ahead of their trip to Asia.

It has been just over a month since Guardiola’s squad emphatically won the treble. A season that reached its climax in Istanbul, finishing with the Blues lifting the Champions League trophy.

Mateo Kovacic is expected to join his new teammates on Monday in preparation for the season ahead.

Manchester City have confirmed that the squad will train for two days in Manchester before their tour of Japan and South Korea.

The first destination will be Tokyo, where the Blues face Yokohama F Marinos on Sunday 23rd July at 11am (UK). They will reunite with Bayern Munich again for their second pre-season game on Wednesday 26th July at 11:30am (UK).

Following a week in Japan, the squad will head to South Korean capital Seoul to challenge Atletico Madrid on Sunday 30th July at 12pm (UK).

When Pep and the boys return from overseas they will face Arsenal in the Community Shield on Sunday 6th August at a revised time of 16:00 (UK).
