However, with Euro 2008 this summer as well, perhaps a number of players will be missing, Spanish players like Iniesta and Xavi, and then the once glorious trio of Deco, Eto’o, and Ronaldinho are all on the way out it looks like.

MLS' marketing arm, Soccer United Marketing sealed a deal with Barcelona, a five-year agreement with the MLS for six games over the next five years. That doesn't seem like too many games, but at least they're coming over here.

The dates of the tour likely will depend on dates for the third round of European Champions League qualifying, in which Barcelona must compete to reach the group stage.
