Manchester United stars and their WAGs roll in for charity gala at Old Trafford as Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Co attend event headlined by Stormzy
Manchester United stars have rolled up for a star-studded gala at Old Trafford in aid of Unicef — complete with a headline performance from grime star Stormzy.
The Red Devils stars rocked up to the Theatre of Dreams with their glamorous wives and girlfriends dressed to the nines for the charity event on Wednesday night.
Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Co all took the chance to pose with Stormzy — a known United fan — as they posed for photos at the red-carpet event.

Chris Smalling and his wife Sam Cook, fresh from narrowly escaping a parking fine earlier on Wednesday, put their hectic day behind them to strike poses for the cameras ahead of the event.
Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof, Matteo Darmian, David de Gea, Juan Mata and Daley Blind were all in attendance — arm in arm with their partners.
The Premier League giants have hosted the United for Unicef event for 18 years running and all proceeds from the event will go to aid work in Thailand.
Fans are given the chances to rub shoulders with their favourite players and can even win signed memorabilia.

United boss Jose Mourinho told the club’s website: ‘Charity is one of the amazing things in society and I have always been very supportive of Unicef. You know that the money is going to the right place and is going to make a big difference.
‘This year the money is going to help children in Thailand so we know that we are going to contribute to a better future – I think it is difficult to have a better feeling than that.’
It is a welcome break for the players, many of whom have packed in international friendlies following United’s last game against Chelsea.
But ahead of the Premier League’s return this weekend, when Mourinho’s men welcome Newcastle to Manchester, the squad had a chance to let their hair down — and all for a good cause.
