Manchester United are aiming to add one more friendly against a Football League after the training camp in Spain ends
According to Manchester Evening News, the club are planning to add one more pre-season friendly before the season half of the season resumes.
The players who have not travelled to the FIFA World Cup along with manager Erik ten hag have travelled to Spain for a training camp ahead of the season resumption and are set to face La Liga sides Cadiz and Real Betis in the coming week.
After the completion of the tour, United are set to play Burnley in the fourth round of the League Cup, which would be the first official game post the World Cup.
However, it is said that there is a gap of ten days between the clashes against Real Betis and then Burnley hence the club are looking at possible options to arrange one more tie, preferably against a Football League team before their clash with the Clarets.
With the FIFA World Cup at the knockout stages and currently the qualified teams accounting for twelve first-team players from the team, one or more of the players are bound to stay till the end of the tournament.
Hence, it is pretty important for the rest of the players to regain fitness and game minutes after a break of more than a month from football.
Warm-weather conditions in Spain certainly provide the heat necessary to bring the players back to the routine and hopefully the club is able to arrange one more friendly on English soil before the official games begin.
The tie against Burnley could prove to be a tough one if the gap of ten days is given between two games for players and former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany could come back to haunt the Red Devils.
More confirmation on the fixtures would be made clear in the coming days but it is good days again as we would be able to witness the team coming together and playing again pretty soon.

Some of our players are having a deep run into the competition and may not be readily available to play immediately once the season resumes. In such a case, we need to have the backup players fit and ready to take their place temporarily.
