SANTA CLARA — The International Champions Cup is returning to Levi’s Stadium this summer with another blockbuster soccer matchup: A.C. Milan vs. FC Barcelona.

The star-studded European clubs are scheduled to meet Aug. 4 as part of an expanded summer exhibition tournament that includes the biggest teams in soccer. The tournament begins July 20, five days after the World Cup final in Moscow.

Some of the World Cup stars might not join the pre-season tours because they will need rest, depending on how far their national teams advance in Russia. But the names of Barcelona and Milan, which both began in 1899, should be enough of a draw.

Barca (25-0-8, 83 points) is in first place in La Liga heading into the final month. Barcelona has won 24 league titles, 29 Copa del Rey crowns and five UEFA Champions League trophies. The team boasts some of the world’s biggest names in forwards Lionel Messi of Argentina and Luis Suarez of Uruguay and midfielders Andres Iniesta of Spain and Paulinho of Brazil.

Milan (15-9-8, 53 points) is sixth in Serie A under manager Gennaro Gattuso. ACM is Italy’s most successful international team in history. It also has won 18 Serie A titles.

The International Champions League tournament that ends Aug. 12 features Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Juventus FC, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. Most of the games will be held throughout the United States but matches also are scheduled for Singapore and Europe.
