Barcelona to tour United States this summer - sources

La Liga title rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid are set to meet each other in Miami this summer, according to reports in Catalonia.

Barca have not yet announced their plans for the offseason but sources confirmed to ESPN FC that the club plan to visit the United States once again, with an official announcement expected on March 21.

Spanish radio station RAC1 earlier reported that Barca will face Madrid on July 29 as part of an American tour which will also see them play Juventus and Manchester United in New York on July 22 and Washington on July 25 respectively.

All three games will be part of the International Champions Cup (ICC), which takes place each preseason across America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

The Catalan side will also play a fourth game in the competition, although that will be in Europe and the opposition for the fixture has not yet been decided.

Last season, Barca chose to remain in Europe, although they did still take part in the ICC, playing matches against Celtic, Leicester City and Liverpool in Dublin, Stockholm and Liverpool, respectively.

However, in 2015 they played three games in the United States, against LA Galaxy, Man Utd and Chelsea, with a fourth game against Fiorentina in Europe, echoing their plans for this summer.

As well as their four ICC games, Barca will also host the annual Joan Gamper Trophy match at Camp Nou -- which will this year be against Chapecoense -- and are likely to also be involved in the Spanish Super Cup before the start of the league campaign.

Barca are currently one point behind Madrid at the top of the table and face their rivals at the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of April.

It's considered one of the biggest rivalries in sport and a meeting between the two sides in Miami would arguably be the biggest game in the ICC since it began in 2013.
