Barcelona were spotted training at Old Trafford ahead of this evening’s Europa League play-off tie with Manchester United.
The Blaugrauna were taking in their surroundings in one of the most historic stadiums in world football. It won’t compare to what they’ll witness this evening though; the Theatre of Dreams under the floodlights with over 70,000 fans in full voice, roaring on the Reds with every touch.
