ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The University of Michigan is holding talks about bringing top soccer teams Real Madrid and Manchester United to the 109,901-seat Michigan Stadium on Aug. 2 as part of the International Champions Cup.

The tournament is being held at various venues across the U.S. starting July 2, but officials haven’t yet announced the date and location for the Real Madrid-Manchester United game.

Michigan associate athletic director Dave Ablauf tells The Detroit News (http://bit.ly/1flQIZ9 ) that the Ann Arbor school is “in discussions, but nothing’s finalized” about holding the game at the outdoor stadium.
