The Asian leg of the preseason International Champions Cup competition gets underway on Saturday with a clash of European titans. The English Premier League's Manchester United take on 18-time Italian Serie A champions Inter Milan, with the added intrigue of a controversial, major player transfer deal between the two clubs, as The Manchester Evening News hinted.
But both teams will be looking to get themselves fit for their respective 2019-2020 campaigns in which each side will be determined to better their subpar performances turned in last season. Inter barely snuck into fourth place, hanging on to a UEFA Champions League place, while Man United dropped to sixth, ending up in the Europa League. Both will try to get on track in the match that will live stream from Singapore.

One of the most important, yet controversial players on each team will be missing for the International Champions Cup match. For Manchester United, Belgium international Romelu Lukaku remains out with an ankle injury. But the star has already made it clear that he hopes that his next game will not be with United, but instead with Antonio Conte's Inter, according to Sempre Inter. But Manchester United have reportedly demanded a sizable $93 million price tag for the Belgian.
On the other side of the ball, Inter Milan's malcontent Argentine goal-scorer Mauro Icardi also appears to be on his way out, and has been ruled out of the Asia tour, including Saturday's match against United. According to Sempre Inter, Serie A rivals SSC Napoli are preparing a "big money" offer for Icardi.
