Victor Lindelof’s fiancee Maja Nilsson has branded the prices of executive boxes at Old Trafford ‘disgusting’.
The Manchester United squad can hire out luxury suites for their friends and families to relax in during home games. The prices vary with the cheapest costing £24,000 and the more expensive being priced at £81,600 and higher.

It’s an interesting insight into the surprising pressures of being rich and famous.
Speaking on her podcast Livet På Läktaren (Life in the Stands), Nilsson said: “Players have the option to rent a box. I’m not even going to tell you for how much, but a disgusting amount.
“If you don’t buy one you’re considered a loser.
“But having a box is wonderful. You get your own waiter.”
Lindelof is starting to settle in at United after a slow start to life at the club. A shaky pre-season left Jose Mourinho with the impression that it would take longer than expected for the Swede to adapt.
However, a first start for the club came last week in the 3-0 win over Basel in the Champions League. He followed this up with another outing in the comfortable 4-1 win over Burton Albion in the League Cup.
He’ll be keen to play his former club Benfica when they play United in the Champions League next month.
Lindelof was one of four summer signings by United. The other three were Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and the returning Zlatan Ibrahimovic. There’s a chance that further new boys will arrive in January.
According to the agent of Lucas Lima, the Red Devils want to sign the Brazil international. Barcelona, Inter Milan, and AS Roma are among the other clubs keen to snap up the 27-year-old when his contract expires in January.
United missed out on a playmaking attacker when their bid to sign Ivan Perisic failed.
