Man United and Real Madrid in bitter bust-up in Los Angeles

Manchester United and Real Madrid have been involved in a bitter bust-up over hotel and training facilities in Los Angeles, according to reports.

The two football superpowers are in LA as part of their respective pre-season tour are warring over who has the best hotel and training facilities, SunSports report.

Organisers of the International Champions Cup, in which the two sides meet later this month, described the situation as a “nightmare”.

Both clubs are training at UCLA this week but there were rows early on about who would use which pitch.

Jose Mourinho’s United have landed the five-star Montage hotel, with some staff also in the Beverly Wilshire — widely regarded as the premier hotel in the city. While Jose’s former club Real are in the Beverly Hills Hotel.

There was already bad blood dating back to the Spanish giants’ 2009 pursuit of Cristiano Ronaldo. At the time United chief Sir Alex Ferguson said he “wouldn’t sell them a virus”.

Then on transfer deadline day in summer 2015, Real’s David De Gea move collapsed over paperwork — with the clubs blaming each other.

There were more issues this summer as United tried to buy Alvaro Morata but talks broke down over a £20million gap in the clubs’ valuations.

It all makes for a bitter backdrop as the sides clash in Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium a week on Sunday.
