Manchester United begin preparations for the 2021/22 season with Wayne Rooney’s Derby County game at Pride Park on Sunday, July 18 (kick-off at 1pm).

United have confirmed four pre-season friendlies ahead of the new season and they’re starting this battle against a familiar face, with Rooney holding the Rams in the championship on the final day of last season.

United will return to Carrington for pre-season training in early July, and that game against Derby will take place a week after the Euro 2020 final.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team will then complete a week-long training camp in the UK before their second friendly against another championship team at the Queens Park Rangers on Saturday 24 July (3pm) at the Kiyan Price Foundation Stadium.
