Chelsea will meet Barcelona and PSG in stellar pre-season fixtures in their build-up to the 2015/16 Premier League campaign.

Jose Mourinho's side face the European heavyweights during a tour to America for the International Champions Cup, which begins with a clash against Thierry Henry's former club the New York Red Bulls in New Jersey on Thursday 23 July.

The Blues then play PSG in North Carolina on Saturday 25 July and Luis Enrique's Barca in Washington DC on Wednesday 29 July. They then return to Stamford Bridge to face Serie A's Fiorentina on Wednesday 5 August.

 

The Premier League champions will be determined to build upon their superb showing this season and set up a title defence with a positive pre-season. Although Mourinho has played down the possibility of big-money arrivals, the club are traditionally among the most active in the transfer market, so these friendlies could offer the perfect opportunity for fans to see new signings in action.
