Pep Guardiola's squad are set to return for the first day of pre-season training on Monday 17 July.

Just over a month on from securing a historic Treble with the 1-0 Champions League victory over Inter in Istanbul, the first team will be back at the City Football Academy.

New signing Mateo Kovacic is among the players expected back on Monday morning to begin preparations for the new season.

The squad will spend two days in Manchester before heading off on the pre-season tour of Japan and South Korea on Wednesday 19 July.

City head to Tokyo first where we will face Yokohama F Marinos at 11:00 (UK) on Sunday 23 July and Bayern Munich at 11:30 (UK) on Wednesday 26 July.

We then return to the UK ahead of the Community Shield game with Premier League runners-up Arsenal at 16:00 (UK) on Sunday 6 August, less than a week before our title defence begins.
