Erik ten Hag will reportedly include a visit to Las Vegas as part of Manchester United’s pre-season plans as he looks to test player discipline.
  • Red Devils planning return to the States
  • Have not visited the USA since 2018
  • Expected to take in games on both coasts

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.


WHAT NEXT? United spent the summer of 2022, following Ten Hag’s appointment as manager, travelling to Thailand and Australia and have not visited the USA since 2018.
