United and Liverpool were hoping to face each other in last year’s pre-season.

But they scrapped plans following fan protests at Old Trafford which led to the postponement of their Premier League game.

However, club chiefs on both sides are keen for the bitter rivals to face each other in front of a bumper audience on the other side of the world.

United and Liverpool are two of the most popular football teams in the Far East.

And a game between the pair would attract plenty of high-profile attention.

The two sides next meet in the league next month.

And United will be out for revenge after suffering a humiliating 5-0 defeat at home in October.

Indeed, the Red Devils have not won a league match against Liverpool since March 2018, losing four and drawing three of the last seven meetings.

However, United did manage to knock Liverpool out of last term’s FA Cup with a thrilling 3-2 win.

And fans around the world are sure to tune in should their pre-season friendly in Thailand get the go-ahead.
