According to ESPN, United’s preseason plans are suspended because of the dangerous coronavirus. Manchester United has discussed the possibility of returning to Asia this summer. But talks have stopped while the club seeks advice about the virus. It has infected more than 40,000 people globally, mostly in China.
The club hasn’t finalised any plans, but there have also been talks about playing friendlies in other parts of Asia and India in July before the start of the Premier league season on Aug. 8th.
Sources have told ESPN that United will “wait and see” before making any firm plans for their summer tour. They have spent four of their last six summers in the United States and a return to North America remains a possibility if the situation in Asia does not improve.
United is taking the right precautions here. This coronavirus has taken the world by storm and is a very serious virus that has turned into an epidemic worldwide. So I believe this is the right thing to do.
