Pep Guardiola's side are currently away on their respective vacations or busy battling with their international sides at the European Championships or Copa America.
However, back home, plans are being put into place as to how best to prepare the reigning Premier League champions for the defence of their crown for the third time in the last four seasons.
The latest information from Spain and now within English media is that one match has already been finalised against one La Liga giant.
It is understood that Manchester City will face Barcelona in a pre-season friendly at the Nou Camp on Thursday 19th August, with match proceeds going to charity.
It will be the first opportunity for the English side and the first-team squad to take on the recently departed Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia - who both left the Etihad Stadium earlier this month for the Spanish giants.
The game will also be music to the ears of Pep Guardiola, who made his feelings known on multiple occasions at the start of last season, as Manchester City went straight from a Champions League exit to Lyon into the new season with now preparation.
Manchester City fans will also be hoping it is one of the first opportunities to catch sight of some new players, with Etihad officials seemingly relaxed in their recruitment approach this summer.
Known targets are England duo Jack Grealish and Harry Kane - however, neither player is expected to discuss their future until after the ongoing European Championships.
