MILAN (AP) -- The Special One is coming to The House that The Boss Built.

AC Milan says it will play Real Madrid and coach Jose Mourinho at Yankee Stadium on Aug. 8.

AC Milan, owned by former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, plays Chelsea in Miami on July 28 and says it will have a match in Pittsburgh on Aug. 4.

The Spanish league champions, on their third straight U.S. preaseason tour, open at the Los Angeles Galaxy on Aug 2 and play Italian league champion Juventus three days later in Las Vegas. They'll meet Scottish champion Glasgow Celtic in Philadelphia on Aug. 5.

Mourinho earned his nickname at his introductory news conference as Chelsea manager in 2004 when he said "I think I'm a special one."

It's the second preseason game at the new Yankee Stadium, which opened in 2009. European champion Chelsea plays Paris Saint-Germain there on July 22.
