Two major European clubs, who are both determined to improve on disappointing 2018-2019 seasons, will face off on what will be the final preseason tuneup for each. English Premier League side Manchester United, who finished sixth on the table, and Italian Serie A giants AC Milan, who are coming off a fifth-place finish, meet in the preseason International Champions Cup.
Both teams suffered such underwhelming performances last season that their managers lost their jobs. AC Milan’s Gennaro Gattuso bowed out by “mutual agreement” with the club after the Rossoneri failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, as the BBC reported. As for Manchester United, they didn’t wait around, sacking Manager Jose “The Special One” Mourinho last December after another sluggish start. The two clubs wrap up their preseason in the match that will live stream from Millennium Stadium.

United will be showing off at least one new face on Saturday, after finalizing a whopping $102 million transfer of Leicester City and England defender Harry McGuire, a record fee for a defensive player, as The Inquisitr reported earlier on Friday.
