Manchester United to pay for fans' Russian visas on Rostov trip - reports

Manchester United are to cover the cost of Russian visas for fans travelling to their Europa League game against FC Rostov on March 9, according to reports.

United will make the trip to Rostov, located almost 2,000 miles away just east of Ukraine, for the round of 16 clash and around 500 fans are planning to travel to the game.

The club have reportedly offered to refund the £118.20 processing fee for the Russian visa as a gesture of goodwill given the three-week timeframe between the draw and the tie.

United play Chelsea in the FA Cup quarterfinal on Monday, March 13 before the return leg against Rostov three days later.
