Manchester United vs. AC Milan: Where to Watch, Live Stream, Team News and Latest Odds

After traveling to Australia, Singapore, China and Norway, Manchester United's preseason tour ends much closer to home.

On Saturday, the 20-time champions of England take on A.C. Milan in Cardiff, Wales, in their final friendly of the summer before the beginning of the Premier League season.

The Welsh capital was the backdrop to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first game in charge of United in December. Back then, United thrashed Cardiff 5-1, and the Norwegian will be hoping for a similarly positive omen to carry into the upcoming campaign.

With five wins in five games, United has enjoyed a fine preseason but off-field events have overshadowed the results. With just over a week until Chelsea visit Old Trafford on the opening weekend of the Premier League season, Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka remain United's only summer signings.

Similarly, the clearout Solskjaer hinted to at the end of last season has failed to materialize, with only Antonio Valencia and Ander Herrera leaving the club. Romelu Lukaku could soon follow them through the departure gate, with United said to be working on a swap deal with Juventus. That move would take the Belgian to Italy in exchange for Paulo Dybala.

Signing the Argentinian would represent a major coup for United, who is also hoping to resolve the ongoing sagas surrounding Leicester City defender Harry Maguire and Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

Both players have been linked with a move to United throughout the summer but the club is yet to reach a deal for either of them.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Saturday.

United has won each of its five preseason games so far this summer. A 2-0 win against Perth Glory and a 4-0 thrashing of Leeds United in Australia were followed by 1-0 wins against Inter Milan in Singapore and a 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur in China. On Tuesday, United edged out Norwegian side Kristiansund in Oslo thanks to a late penalty from Juan Mata.

A.C. Milan's preseason has been at the opposite end of the spectrum compared to United's. The seven-time European Cup winners have lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich and Benfica in their two games in the U.S.

Team news

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has mixed experience with youth so far this summer.

New signings Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have featured prominently, alongside the likes of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

The Norwegian, however, has also tapped into United's pool of young talent, handing Mason Greenwood, Tahith Chong and James Garner their chances to impress.

With just eight days until the first Premier League of the campaign, Solskjaer is expected to err on the side of caution to avoid any injuries.

Marco Giampaolo has adopted a similar approach for A.C. Milan, starting a relatively inexperienced team against Bayern Munich, before bringing some of the more senior players back into the fold against Benfica.

Unlike United, who begins its league campaign next week, A.C. Milan don't play a competitive game until August 25, so Giampaolo could shuffle his pack more than Solskjaer.


According to William Hill, United is a 3/4 favorite, while A.C. Milan is a 16/5 outsider and the draw is at 27/10.
