Man United will take on Barcelona, Chelsea, Porto, PSG, LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls, San Jose Earthquakes and Club America in this year's International Champions Cup.

United won the pre-season tournament last season when their glitzy clash with Champions League winners Real Madrid attracted a crowd of nearly 110,000 fans in Michigan.

The Red Devils eventually defeated arch rivals Liverpool in the final, but Brendan Rodgers' side will not be taking part in this year's event which is scheduled for late July and early August 2015.

A group of Man City supporters were filmed singing a vile chant about the Munich Air Disaster following Sunday's Manchester derby defeat.

Following the match at Old Trafford, a group of City fans congregated near the stadium to taunt their local rivals about the fatal plane crash in February 1958.

Eight Man United players and three members of staff were among the 22 fatalities in the tragedy, which was caused by slush towards the end of the runway as the plane attempted to take off.

A Manchester City spokesman said:

We are currently liaising with Greater Manchester Police with regards to the behaviour of a small number of Manchester City fans at yesterday's game.

We operate zero tolerance policies with regards to incidents of this kind and the club will work will work with GMP to assist with their queries and deal appropriately with anyone found to have committed an offence of this nature.

Goalscorer Juan Mata said Manchester United would take confidence from their 4-2 derby win on Sunday.

The first 10-15 minutes they (City) were brilliant but after that the team showed character.

It's a massive win for us, a massive result. The atmosphere was crazy. It's something we'll never forget.

It's a big win, it's a boost of confidence but we still have games to go. We have to fight until the last minute.

– Juan Mata
