Carlo Ancelotti’s side will play Arsenal on Jul 19 in Shanghai and AC Milan on Jul 22 at Shenzhen, before heading for Singapore where they will meet Chelsea on Jul 25 and Inter two days later.

“It’s a very important element in our international brand strategy, FC Bayern now have 135 million fans in China and more and more fans in Southeast Asia,” Joerg Wacker, head of internationalisation and strategy for Bayern said on the club’s website.
