The high demand for tickets to Saturday’s Manchester derby has forced resale prices to sky-rocket. Tickets are currently being sold on resale sites for as much as €950.

Pep Guardiola vs Jose Mourinho

The fixture at Old Trafford (Saturday, 13.30 CEST) is flagged as one of the biggest events of the European footballing calendar but has attracted even more attention this year given that it will see Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho facing off in the Premier League for the very first time.

Guardiola and Mourinho will resume their rivalry in the Premier League, having coincided in LaLiga between 2010 and 2012.

Tickets for the derby on resale for almost €1,000

The heightened demand has led to tickets being offered on leading resale sites for up to €950. Unsurprisingly, tickets for sale through official club channels sold out weeks ago.

Both City and United have started the new Premier League season strongly with three wins from three, as have Antonio Conte’s Chelsea.
