WHAT HAPPENED? The Red Devils are said to be planning a return to American soil in 2023 as they draw up a tour schedule for the United States. Vegas will form part of that process, with the Premier League heavyweights preparing to pay a first visit to the city as a collective.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Daily Star claims that United will take in a meeting against Premier League opposition at Allegiant Stadium – the home of the Las Vegas Raiders NFL franchise - in July. It is suggested that demanding Dutch coach Ten Hag wants to use the trip to Nevada to test how his players react to being presented with obvious distractions.

AND WHAT'S MORE: United are expected to spend around three weeks in the United States, taking in games on both coasts, as they ready themselves for the start of the 2023-24 campaign – by which point they will hope to have got back into a trophy-winning habit.
