Manchester United’s team bonding night out at the Ivy goes awry as Luke Shaw is given a parking ticket and David de Gea has his Aston Martin CLAMPED… but on £375k-a-week it shouldn’t be a problem!
- Manchester United players went for dinner at the Ivy ahead of season opener
- Team bonding evening comes with Leeds clash on Saturday around the corner
- But not everything went to plan for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s players in the city
- Luke Shaw was given a parking ticket and David de Gea had his clamped
David de Gea was forced to take a taxi home from Manchester United’s team bonding dinner out after finding his Aston Martin clamped.
The goalkeeper joined team-mates at the swanky establishment as they toasted the upcoming season but will have been dismayed by his £150,000 Aston Martin Vantage being rendered immobile afterwards for not having any tax.
Images show the Spaniard’s luxury sports car with a front wheel locked up and yellow notice stuck to one of the windows in a city centre parking spot.

De Gea was not the only United star to be confronted with a car-related frustration in the wake of United’s three-and-a-half hour meal.
England full-back Luke Shaw was among the players to leave the restaurant at around 10:30pm and found he had been given a parking ticket.
The 26-year-old’s Range Rover was seen with the yellow ticket on the windscreen on Tuesday night.
Solskjaer’s squad will have been celebrating the end of their pre-season campaign and looking ahead to the start of the Premier League.
The likes of Paul Pogba and new £73million signing Jadon Sancho were pictured upon arrival to the Ivy.

The Frenchman was kitted out in a denim jacket and black cap while the England winger wore an understated white t-shirt.
Some, including the 21-year-old, wore a face covering while others opted against it.
No doubt Solskjaer and Co were looking ahead to what might be in store for them this season as they bid for a 14th Premier League crown and 21st league title.
United will play their season opener in front of supporters at Old Trafford in Saturday’s 12:30pm kick off.
They take on Marcelo Bielsa’s swashbuckling Leeds side having strengthened in the transfer market with the recruitment of Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and Raphael Varane will soon be arriving.
The Real Madrid centre-back is set to join on a £42m deal having completed his medical at Carrington on Wednesday.
