Manchester United, Chelsea and Barcelona will headline the 2015 International Champions Cup in the United States in July, organisers said yesterday.

The pre-season tournament, which has attracted huge attendances across the States, will feature 10 clubs in its third year, including three from North America's Major League Soccer.

Barcelona, 22-times Spanish and four-times European champions, will feature in the competition for the first time. United won last season's tournament, while Premier League leaders Chelsea return after playing in the first edition in 2013.

The other European teams in this year's competition are French champions Paris St Germain, 27-times Portuguese champions FC Porto and Italian Serie A club Fiorentina.

Mexican champions Club America, who have a large fan base in the US, will be the first Liga MX team to feature.
