Manchester City's new record signing Riyad Mahrez, Joe Hart and France World Cup winner Benjamin Mendy were in the travelling party for the club's summer tour to the United States.

Pep Guardiola's squad departed on Tuesday and are scheduled to play Borussia Dortmund in Chicago, Liverpool in New York and Bayern Munich in Miami during the next 11 days.

Mahrez, 27, signed a five-year deal to complete his £60 million (Dh290.2m) switch from Leicester City seven days ago, while former England goalkeeper Hart has spent the past two seasons on loan at Torino and West Ham United after falling out of favour with Guardiola.

Defender Mendy, who made just one substitute appearance for France during their triumph at Russia 2018, and Portugal midfielder Bernardo Silva are the only members of Guardiola's squad who featured in the World Cup to be included on the trip.
