Milan giants to contest USA summer tournament

AC Milan and Inter will play a friendly match in the United States of America as part of a summer four-club, six-city tournament that also includes Chelsea and Club America.

The Milan giants will play each other in Massachusetts on July 26 as part of the World Football Challenge.

Inter, closing in on their fourth straight Serie A title, open the tournament in California on July 19 against Mexican giants Club America before Jose Mourinho's side takes on his former club Chelsea two days later.

Seven-time European champions Milan will face Club America on July 22 in Georgia and Chelsea two days later in Maryland.

The final game of the tournament will see the English club take on Club America in Texas on July 26.

It had already been announced that Milan would be heading to America to play a stand-alone match against the Los Angeles Galaxy in California on July 19, as part of the deal that extended David Beckham's loan with the Rossoneri through to the end of the Italian season.
