Manchester United are set face Barcelona in August in Sweden.

United will tackle old foes Barcelona in a high-profile pre-season friendly in Gothenburg on August 8.

The pair have met in two of the last four Champions League finals, plus the 2008 semi-final.

More recently, they met in Washington last summer as part of pre-season preparations for the 2011-12 campaign.

"Manchester United against Barcelona is one of the top fixtures in world football and we are delighted to work with GotEvent to bring this match to the beautiful city of Gothenburg," said United chief executive David Gill.

"We have a large following throughout Scandinavia and it's great that this match will form part of our preparations for the new season."
