And on the subject of Milan...

A new travel firm has popped up offering sports trips abroad, including to United Euro away games.

Low Cost Sport is offering day trips to the Inter Milan game on February 24 for £249 per person.

That includes return flights, taxes and transfers to and from the airport, though it might not include insurance.

The flight leaves Manchester at 8am on the day of the game arrives at 11.15am local time. Then, on the way home, the flight leaves Milan at 1am and arrives home at 2.15am.

One of the major plus points is that the company only wants a £50 deposit upon booking, so you can pay the rest after pay day.

There are also discounts for group bookings, but that may only be through official supporters' groups.

As far as organised tours goes, MU Travel is charging £279 for its trip, open to Manchester United members only, while Champions Sports is running a day trip for £249. Neither of these trips, include a match ticket, but the companies can arrange one for you to buy.

In the coming days, there will be a hotel/pub/tourism guide on Milan, so please email your questions to
