Juventus Could Cancel U.S. Tour, Including D.C. United Match, According To Report

D.C. United are currently set to play against Italian soccer team Juventus on July 28 in Washington. However, it seems possible that the match may not even occur now. Juventus is considering canceling their match with D.C. United and their entire U.S. tour, according to a report by Football-Italia.com.

Antonio Conte has reportedly asked Juventus officials to reconsider taking the club to America this pre-season. With the Bianconeri now confirmed as having to travel to Beijing in the second week of August for the Supercoppa Italiana clash with Napoli, Mediaset allege that Conte is concerned for the toll it take on his players when combined with their pre-season commitments.

With the team now needing to take a trip to China, Conte would like the club to reconsider their trip across the world to play friendlies with North American teams.
