Two of Bayern Munich’s three opponents in the International Champions Cup have released the squads that they’re taking stateside for the friendly tournament. Like Bayern, the Arsenal squad and Real Madrid squad are top notch.

Without tournaments like a World Cup or European Championship ending so close to the start of the season, most of the teams taking part in this year’s ICC will be taking as-close-to full strength sides with them as they prep for the upcoming season. If the clubs have a player involved in the African Cup of Nations, Gold Cup, or Copa America, those players might be delayed in returning to their clubs; however, the bulk of players on these teams are from European nations.

As of now, we don’t officially know the players that AC Milan will be bringing stateside for their matches. They have, however, released their squad for their training camp prior to traveling across the Atlantic.
