Barcelona ready to return to Serie A for Joan Gamper opponent

 AC Milan have emerged as a potential opponent for Barcelona in the Joan Gamper Trophy.

Roma pulled out of the Joan Gamper unexpectedly and Barcelona have started to work on finding a new opponent who can face their men and women's teams in a friendly on August 6.

Sport says this could be Serie A champions AC Milan.

Stefano Pioli's side won the Italian league after an 11 year spell without it, so would be a tough test for Xavi and his men ahead of the 2022-23 season.

Barca are threatening legal action against Roma for their decision this week.
