United's home pre-season friendly ahead of the 2018/19 Sky Bet Championship campaign promises to be a fantastic night under the Bramall Lane lights.

18-time Serie A champions Inter will be in the Steel City later this month and the Blades are delighted to be welcoming Luciano Spalletti's side to S2.

The prestigious clash will see the Nerazzurri visit Bramall Lane on Tuesday 24th July, kick-off 7.30pm, with stars like Argentine striker Mauro Icardi expected to travel with the squad. In addition, the Italian giants have added world-class midfielder Radja Nainggolan to their ranks recently.

Founded in 1908, Inter is one of the biggest names in club football, having won both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Cup on three occasions, with the San Siro outfit also being crowned FIFA Club World Cup winners once.

Blades boss Chris Wilder is looking forward to pitting his wits against Spalletti and co, remarking: "We are delighted to welcome one of the world's best club teams to the Lane. Hosting Inter promises to be a fantastic evening and a great test for us in our preparations. That's our schedule ironed out and without doubt this is the highlight of what will be a very beneficial run of friendlies."
