Speaking about their participation later this year, Omar Berrada, Manchester City's chief operating officer, said: "We are delighted to return to China and take part in the Premier League Asia Trophy.
"China is a special place for City - it's where Pep Guardiola began his City tenure in 2016 and we have a huge number of passionate followers across the country.
"We're looking forward to hosting exciting events in China and welcoming local fans to our matches."
Guardiola's side will also play Japanese side Yokohama FM on July 27 at the Nissan Stadium as part of their Asia tour.
