Police found more than 40 tickets for the Premier League champions' recent clash against Arsenal and dozens of season cards in the swoop on a property in Wythenshawe.

A stash of 11,000 in cash was also found in the raid carried out at the end of last month.

Three men were arrested on suspicion of ticket touting before being released on bail.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: "A number of items, believed to be stolen, were seized, along with a large quantity of football tickets."

The charges levelled at the three men, aged 23, 26 and 51, ranged from handling stolen goods to ticket touting and money laundering.
