MANCHESTER UNITED fans are furious with the ticket prices announced for the pre-season friendly against Wrexham.
United will face the non-league side owned by Hollywood superstars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney in San Diego on July 26 as part of the Premier League giants’ pre-season tour of America.
But fans will have to cough up some heavy bucks to watch what is likely to be the Red Devils’ academy and fringe players take on the League Two hopefuls at the Snapdragon Stadium.
The “utterly insane” prices led to a furious reaction by fans with the cheapest ticket costing a whopping $224 (£182).
One fan tweeted: “Utterly insane.”
Another commented: “The ticket prices are ridiculous.”

A third posted: “Man Utd ticket prices for friendly are absurd.”
And one angry supporter added: “Wrexham vs #ManchesterUnited tickets prices are wild. Ticketmaster be bugging.”
And in a nod to the cost of living crisis, another irate fan posted: “$300/ticket for nose bleeds after fees!!! What a joke, family of four can’t enjoy anything anymore.”
The two clubs announced the friendly in a hilarious video showing Reynolds and McElhenney having an awkward conversation with legendary United boss Sir Alex Ferguson via Skype.

The two actors were so intimidated they actually ended the call thinking Ferguson was playing mind games without realising they were on mute the whole time.
It was, of course, pure theatre for the talented actors.
Wrexham will be hoping to be back in the EFL by the time they face the Manchester giants as they are currently jostling with Notts County in the National League.
United, though, are currently not focused on that friendly as they will be challenging for the FA Cup as well as Europa League, while looking to seal at least third place in the Premier League.
