NEW YORK (AP) -- Paris Saint-Germain's Carlo Ancelotti will manage against his former team when the French club plays a preseason exhibition against Champions League finalist Chelsea on July 22 in the first soccer game at new Yankee Stadium.

Chelsea also announced a fourth match for its U.S. tour on Monday, saying it will play AC Milan on July 28 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.

Coming off Saturday's 2-1 win over Liverpool for its seventh FA Cup, Chelsea plays at Bayern Munich on May 19 hoping for its first title in Europe's top club tournament.

Hired by Chelsea in June 2009, Ancelotti managed the Blues to the Premier League-FA Cup double in his first season, then was fired two hours after a second-place finish in the league last May. He was hired by PSG on Dec. 30.

Former Chelsea defender Alex also is on PSG, which has two games left and is competing with Montpellier for the French league title.

Chelsea opens its U.S. tour July 18 at the Seattle Sounders. After the PSG match, the first for Chelsea in New York City since 1954, the Blues play the Major League Soccer All-Stars on July 25 in Chester, Pa.

Tottenham, Liverpool and Aston Villa also have preseason U.S. tours.
