Manchester United have added another game to their mammoth 24,500-mile pre-season schedule.

The Red Devils will face AIK in Stockholm on August 6 as part of preparations for David Moyes' first full season in charge.

Just seven days after United return from their tour of the Far East and Australia, and ahead of testimonials for Rio Ferdinand and Alan Tate, plus the Community Shield meeting with Wigan, it means their overall travel schedule is 500 miles short of an entire trip around the world's circumference.
