Smalling wants Man Utd start for Barcelona clash

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling hopes to be in the team for their US glamour fixture with Barcelona.

Smalling didn't feature against Barca in the Champions League final, but he's looking forward to facing the European champions when the teams do battle again in Washington DC.

"It's going to be a great climax to the tour and a great occasion for all the fans," he told manutd.com.

"I'm definitely looking forward to it - I've had the chance to play against some top teams during my time at United already and I've loved every minute of it.

"This tour game against Barcelona might only be a friendly but you always relish playing against the best players and this will be no different."
