Chelsea will visit the USA this summer in their warm up tour before next season’s Premiership season.

Jose Mourinho’s side will play the Major League Soccer’s All-Star team on 5 August.

“I am very happy to be coming back to the United States again,” said the Chelsea manager.

“This will be our third year preparing for the new Premiership season in America and it is ideal preparation.”

“This time we will have a very tough game against the best players in the MLS,” said Mourinho.

“Last year we played DC United and I was very impressed with the standard of American players then.

“We have several in England and, of course, the US national team have qualified for the World Cup again.

“It will also be great to come to Chicago for the first time.

“The American fans are very welcoming and knowledgeable about English and European soccer, and in Europe we all know about Chicago’s famous sporting history, with the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan.”
