Manchester United will take on their fifth pre-season friendly of the summer as they face Real Madrid in Huston, Texas.

The Real Madrid fixture comes less than 24 hours after a young Manchester United XI fell to a 3-1 defeat against Wrexham in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Erik ten Hag has selected a strong XI as the club look to build on their 2-0 victory against Premier League rivals Arsenal on Saturday evening.
