José Mourinho is really going to get his money's worth this summer.

The manager of the reigning La Liga champions Real Madrid has added a tournament-high fourth match to his club's 2012 Herbalife World Football Challenge schedule with the announcement that los Merengues will take on AC Milan at Yankee Stadium in New York City on Aug. 8 (8 pm ET).

Tickets for the match go on sale Thursday, June 7, in a bundle package with the other scheduled WFC match at Yankee Stadium: Chelsea vs. Paris Saint-Germain (July 22 at 7 pm ET). Any remaining individual game tickets for Real Madrid vs. AC Milan will go on sale at a later date.

Real Madrid's WFC schedule is one worthy of a perennial UEFA Champions League contender and it will make for a true cross-country US tour for Cristiano Ronaldo's crew. They open their 2012 WFC series of games against the MLS Cup champion LA Galaxy on Aug. 2 at The Home Depot Center before moving to Las Vegas for an Aug. 5 contest against Italian champs Juventus.

Mourinho's men then head eastward for what should prove to be a memorable match at Yankee Stadium against AC Milan on Aug. 8 and then close against Scottish champs Celtic in Philadelphia on Aug. 11.

For their part, AC Milan now count with two WFC matches this summer. In addition to the NYC date with Real Madrid on Aug. 8, they take on Chelsea in Miami on July 28.
