D.C. United were previously scheduled to play a July friendly against Juventus FC as part of a doubleheader with a Chelsea - AC Milan friendly, but that doubleheader appears to be in jeopardy. Steven Goff of The Washington Post is reporting that logistical issues could prevent the doubleheader from happening, and that if D.C. United and Juventus do play a friendly this summer, the match could be moved to RFK Stadium.
According to the sources, who requested anonymity because they weren't authoritzed to discuss the doubleheader negotiations, there was no single reason for the failure to finalize a FedEx Field deal. Rather, "there were just too many moving parts to make it work," one source said.
Goff also stated that the Redskins did not immediately return a call for comment, while D.C. United said that they are unwilling to comment on potential friendly opponents.
