Barcelona, Spain (4E Sports) - La Liga squad Barcelona, led by superstar Lionel Messi, plans to play three games in the United States, including one against rival Real Madrid in Miami this summer.

According to sources, Barcelona's plan will be finalized with an official announcement on March 21.

However, several media outlets reported that Barca will face Madrid July 29 and Juventus and Manchester United in New York July 22 and Washington July 25, respectively.

All three games will be part of the International Champions Cup (ICC), which takes place each preseason across America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

The Catalan side will also play a fourth game in the competition, although that will be in Europe and the opposition for the fixture has not yet been decided.

In 2015, Barcelona played three games in the United States, against LA Galaxy, Manchester United and Chelsea, with a fourth game against Fiorentina in Europe.

Barcelona is currently one point behind Madrid at the top of the table and scheduled to face its rivals at the end of April at the Santiago Bernabeu.
