Leeds United will face Manchester United in a ‘friendly’ during a pre-season tour down under, according to Australian news outlet The World Game.
An official announcement of the fixtures is planned for Wednesday, however, early indications are that the game will take place in Perth’s Optus stadium on Wednesday July 17.
The last time the Whites and the Red Devils faced off was in 2011, where Alex Ferguson’s side came away from Elland Road 3-0 winners.
Although, the most memorable match in recent years came the season before when Simon Grayson’s League One side completed one of the more famous FA Cup giant killings, winning 1-0 against the Champions League holders at Old Trafford thanks to Jermaine Beckford’s goal.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side are also set to play Aussie side Western Sydney Wanderers during the tour, which will coincide with the opening of the brand-new Western Sydney Stadium in Parramatta on July 21.
Leeds haven’t played in Australia since they were a Premier League outfit in 2002, as Terry Venables men beat Chilean side Colo 1-0, with a goal from Australian international Harry Kewell.
