City will fly out to the USA on Monday afternoon as the pre-season preparations shift up a gear.
The Blues returned from Scotland in the early hours of Saturday morning and will now travel across the Atlantic to take part in the Guinness International Champions Cup where they will face Liverpool, AC Milan and Olympiacos with the possibility of a final game in Miami should City top their group.
Before the tournament begins, however, the Blues will head to the mid-west where they will take on current MLS champions Sporting Kansas on Wednesday evening.
Then, after a brief stop in New Jersey, City will take play AC Milan on Sunday in Pittsburgh and then it’s off to New York to face Liverpool on Wednesday 30 July.
The final group game will be against Greek side Olympiacos in Minneapolis on 2 August which will determine whether the team flies back to Manchester after the game or on to Miami for a place in the final on 4 August.
The majority of the squad who were on duty in Scotland will travel to the States and will be joined in New York by World Cup stars Yaya Toure, David Silva, Joe Hart, James Milner and Edin Dzeko who all exited at the first stage of the competition
