In response, Manchester United have increased the prices they will charge Sevilla fans coming to Old Trafford for the second-leg.

It's not done there however with Sevilla saying they will also pay the difference to their fans as well as report the English giants to UEFA for not offering the mandatory 5% of tickets for away fans required for UEFA games, as United are only offering 4.1% of Old Trafford's capacity.

The Old Trafford club today sent an email out to supporters to tell them that the controversial £89 ticket price set by the Spanish club for next month's game would remain.

Sevilla are charging United supporters £89 for a ticket in the uncovered away end at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.

The first leg of the Champions League last 16 match will be played in Seville on 21 February.

Sevilla get round the regulations on ticket prices because they have also increased the prices home fans will need to pay to watch the game.

The Red Devils hit back in the bust-up and chose to charge Sevilla fans travelling to Old Trafford the same amount for the return clash at Old Trafford in March.

"As a result of the changes to ticket prices for away fans, should we gain any additional revenue after having refunded our supporters, we will donate this to the Manchester United Foundation".

United attempted to persuade Sevilla to lower their prices but discussions between the two clubs failed to lead to a significant reduction.

"We are delighted United have fought our corner on this issue and are now working with the club to engage with UEFA to look at the non-member fees and the lack of concession tickets which have often been used to hike up prices for our away fans".

It means Sevilla fans will be hit the hardest, something the Premier League side said was necessary to avoid future clubs trying to rip off their travelling supporters.

The visitors to the Theatre of Dreams will be charged the same price as Manchester United fans are being asked.

Sevilla officials claimed the club had reduced prices for the visit of Jurgen Klopp's men, but there was no evidence to back this up.
