After a pair of games in Scotland to kick off their pre-season, City head out to the States this weekend to undertake their American tour in which they will play four fixtures over a period of around 10 days before heading back to finish off their preparations for the 2014/15 season.
On the tour City will face Sporting Kansas City (July 23), Milan (July 27), Liverpool (July 30) and Olympiacos (Aug. 2) and take with them a 23-man squad that sees them without their World Cup participants:
Goalkeepers (3): Willy Caballero, Richard Wright, Ian Lawlor
Defenders (8): Micah Richards, Dedryck Boyata, Gael Clichy, Karim Rekik, Aleksandar Kolarov, Matthias Bossaerts, Matija Nastasic, Jason Denayer
Midfielders (8): Fernando, Samir Nasri, Scott Sinclair, Javi Garcia, Jesus Navas, Jack Rodwell, Bruno Zuculini, Emry Huws
Forwards (4): Alvaro Negredo, Stevan Jovetic, John Guidetti, Kelechi Iheanacho
There is still a smattering of first team experience within the squad but it does provide an opportunity for the likes of Rodwell, Richards, Sinclair (who netted at Hearts), Nastasic and Jovetic as well as Manuel Pellegrini getting a look at the cream of the Academy talent.
