Guardiola has not included any of City's World Cup players in his travelling party and the biggest names are on tour are new record £60m signing Riyad Mahrez, Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane.

Hart spent last season on loan with West Ham after falling out of favour under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, having spent the previous campaign with Torino in Serie A.

The 31-year-old, previously England's first-choice goalkeeper, did not even make Gareth Southgate's 23-man World Cup squad, with Everton's Jordan Pickford earning rave reviews in Russian Federation in his place.

World Cup victor Benjamin Mendy, new signing Riyad Mahrez and Germany outcast Leroy Sane join Hart in what is otherwise a youthful 28-man touring party.

City meet Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool and Bayern Munich in International Champions Cup matches before returning home for the Community Shield clash with Chelsea on August 5.

"Manchester City players and staff departed for the club's summer tour of the USA earlier (on Tuesday)", City confirmed on their official website.

City will then play Liverpool at the MetLife Stadium in NY on July 26 before taking on Bayern Munich at the Hard Rock Stadium in Florida three days later.

They open their Premier League title defence away to Arsenal a week later.
