United are set to make their way to Wembley to take on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City on Saturday, May 25.

The occasion represents a golden opportunity for Erik ten Hag and his underperforming players to redeem the season and somewhat restore some of the dignity and pride that has already been lost.

Winning the FA Cup would also guarantee United entry into the Europa League ahead of the 2024/25 campaign.

reports that the United players were informed by the club that they will almost certainly need to part with thousands of pounds to ensure their loved ones are present at Wembley for the showpiece event.

“Insiders told the Mirror that the team is “not happy” after learning that the ‘official trip’ normally paid for by the club will not be provided due to cost cuts.”

WAGs and relatives of the Red Devils stars will have to pay for their own accommodation, travel and tickets to the game. The newspaper states that representatives of Ten Hag’s men are currently making personal arrangements to fly their families to London.

A source told the news outlet, “With only recently being made aware of it and only being told by text, it hasn’t gone down well”, they said. “The club has offered to arrange hospitality or private boxes for the families but the players will be paying for it.”

A ticket is estimated to cost between £1,000 – £2,000 for each person. They will be handed on a “first come first serve basis.”

This is the latest action by Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS in their efforts to drastically reduce operation costs at Old Trafford and ensure the club runs on a more financially sustainable model.

The corporate cards of senior executives were previously cancelled. In addition to this, club staff were also sent an email last month confirming that they would receive just one complimentary ticket to the FA Cup final.

It was also relayed to the United employees that they must pay £20 to facilitate their coach travel.

Meanwhile, the 20-time English champions return to action tomorrow when they take on Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United in a high-stakes Premier League clash.
