Manchester United have hit back against Barcelona by charging the Spanish club’s fans £102 for tickets in order to subsidise entry for their own supporters in the Nou Camp.

The two teams will meet in the Champions League quarter-finals but United fans have been hit by extortionate prices.

The Spanish giants are charging United supporters a staggering £102 per ticket – the most expensive fee in United’s history outside of a final.

In response, United have now confirmed they will subsidise the cost of an away ticket by making the ‘difficult decision’ to charge Barcelona fans the same price for the first leg at Old Trafford.

A club statement read: ‘In this instance we believe that our travelling supporters are again being subjected to increased/excessive ticket prices from the host club.

‘We have again taken the difficult decision to charge FC Barcelona fans for the home leg at Old Trafford the same amount that FC Barcelona are charging for the away fixture (£102).

‘We will use the additional revenue gained from this to subsidise our travelling support by paying the £27 price difference for each of our travelling supporters.’

United fans will now be charged a more reasonable £75 for their entry to the Nou Camp when they return to the scene of their dramatic 1999 Champions League triuimph. 

The Red Devils have been given 4,610 tickets for the game. 

United also stepped in to help their supporters by subsidising tickets for the group game in Valencia earlier this season and in the knockout stages against Sevilla last season.
