PIC: Man Utd's team bus has just been clamped in Dublin

Manchester United have arrived in Dublin ahead of their pre-season friendly in the Aviva Stadium - but the Premier League side haven't gotten off to the best start on their trip to the Irish capital.

Despite being one of the biggest and most successful clubs in the world, it seems that wasn't enough for the Dublin clampers to let them off the hook for parking in the wrong spot.

The team are staying atthe Marker Hotel in Grand Canal Square and images circulating on Twitter this afternoon appear to show United's team bus falling foul of the clampers.

Having been named the richest side in the world earlier this year, we imagine they won't be struggling to pay the fine.

Jose Mourinho's side are set to face Sampdoria tonight at 7.45pm at the Aviva Stadium, with recent signing Nemanja Matic expected to make his unofficial debut for the club.

The Serbian midfielder has travelled with the squad to Ireland having c ompeted his £40m move to Old Trafford on Monday.

Phil Jones and Daley Blind have also travelled over to Dublin, despiteb eing sanctioned by UEFAfor a breach of doping rules .

Jones has been banned for two matches while Blind has received a fine, with the punishments relatingto the aftermath of United's 2-0 victory over Ajax in the Europa League final in May.

Jones is understood to have verbally abused a doping control officer after being asked to take a test following the game, while Blind was reluctant to take a test as he wanted to celebrate with his teammates.
