Are you ready for some soccer?

According to WorldSoccerTalk.com, international soccer powerhouses Manchester United and Real Madrid will be making the trip to Ann Arbor this summer as a part of the 2014 International Champions Cup. Per the report, the game is scheduled for 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 2. Stops also include Chicago, Denver, Miami and Dallas.
