After a positive debut campaign at Old Trafford, Erik Ten Hag will be looking forward to getting his players back in a couple of weeks for pre-season. While the Dutchman will perhaps be disappointed that no new signings have been made as of yet, there is belief that at least one player will be in through the doors at Carrington in time for pre-season.
This summer, Manchester United will play seven friendlies as they prepare for the 2023/24 campaign with some top-level opposition lined up to take on the Red Devils in four separate countries. With three weeks to go until their first pre-season fixture, here is everything you need to know.

Manchester United's first game this pre-season will be played against Leeds United in Norway and their final game of pre-season will take place in Dublin against Athletic Bilbao.
