Man United add Ireland trip for Sampdoria match on summer tour



Manchester United will play Sampdoria in Dublin this summer after adding a seventh game to their tour schedule.
Jose Mourinho’s team will head to Dublin and face the Italian club at the Aviva Stadium on the evening of Wednesday August 2.
The trip to the Irish capital will follow five games in the United States against MLS opposition, the first Manchester derby outside the UK and matches against newly-crowned La Liga champions Real Madrid and Barcelona.
United will then visit Norway to play Valerenga in Oslo at the end of July.
Sampdoria finished 10th in the Serie A this season, 40 point behind winners Juventus.
United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, said: “The team has a good variety of games over the summer, playing in great stadiums and allowing a large number of our global family of fans to see live games across the world.
“The pre-season programme has been put together to ensure the manager and his squad have a great platform to prepare for next season with games against top class opposition.”
United rounded off their domestic season with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace and will finish the season on Wednesday in Stockholm with the Europa League final against Ajax.
Mourinho’s team finished sixth in the Premier League, seven points behind Liverpool who secured the last top-four spot.
