"Playing Bayern Munich is always a great occasion and this match has the added excitement of our new head coach Pep Guardiola returning to play with Manchester City against his former club," City chief executive Ferrran Soriano told mcfc.co.uk.

"Bayern will provide fitting opposition as our team continues its pre-season preparations and we will be able to connect with our fans in Germany."

Bayern will be coached by former Real Madrid, AC Milan and Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti.
