It will be United's last overseas friendly of the summer before they face Everton in Wayne Rooney's testimonial at Old Trafford on August 3.

The FA Cup winners then play Premier League champions Leicester in the Community Shield at Wembley on August 7.

During their time in China, United will play Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai (July 22) and Manchester City in Beijing (July 25) in the International Champions Cup.

Wayne Rooney believes "exciting times" lie ahead at Manchester United following Jose Mourinho's appointment as manager.

Months of speculation finally came to an end last Friday, with the former Chelsea boss signing a three-year deal at Old Trafford following Louis van Gaal's wholly-expected sacking.

Mourinho's arrival has been welcomed by many connected to the club and captain Rooney has joined the chorus of those backing the appointment.

"It's exciting - one of the best managers in the world," the 30-year-old said.

"Obviously he knows the Premier League really well and for myself, and I am sure for the other Manchester United players, it's exciting times. I am looking forward to it."
