Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona are in talks over a pre-season tournament in the United States this summer, according to a report in ESPN.

The three clubs are looking for new ways to create revenue post-pandemic and a series of friendlies in the US is their latest attempt at doing this after the failed European Super League in 2021.

Milan invited

They have approached Serie A outfit AC Milan about being the fourth team in the tournament. It’s believed that the tournament would take place on the west coast of the US. Several cities are reportedly vying to host a Clásico between Madrid and Barcelona.

The LaLiga clubs last met in the US in 2017, with Barça winning 3-2 in what would be Neymar's final match for the club before his move to PSG.

Failed Super League

Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus are the only clubs still interested in creating a European Super League.

Twelve teams were initially part of the breakaway competition in April 2021. The new league would have seen them leave the Champions League, however, Atlético Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United and Manchester City all pulled out following protests from fans of the English clubs involved.
