United are yet to confirm their summer schedule, following the cancellation of the Ohio Cup, in which they were likely to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers, Valencia or Villarreal.

They have, however, announced matches against Atalanta and Athletico Bilbao, slated for Friday, July 29 and Saturday, July 30 respectively.

The Magpies will also travel to Portugal to contest the Eusebio Cup against Benfica on Tuesday, July 26.

It is thought two further friendlies will be scheduled between the Munich and Benfica games.
