And the drink flowed so freely that one drunken ace reportedly WET his trousers. One reveller at the champagne event in Manchester’s Great John Street Hotel said: “It was the party to be at this Christmas. There was booze here, there and everywhere. “Some people might think it’s an obscene amount of money to spend on alcohol — but United is the biggest club in the world and they don’t do things by halves.” International superstars Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gabriele Heinze were among 100 team-mates and guests who partied into the early hours. The biggest individual round came in at £2,415, closely followed by another of £1,880 and one more of £1,536. Other eye-catching rounds totalled £1,198, £1,048 and £1,010 — while the cheapest item on the club’s bill was a pack of kettle crisps at £1.50. The stars also tucked into a £2,000 buffet and exclusively hired the hotel’s 30 rooms — adding an extra £4,650 to the night. The grand total is tipped to nudge towards £50,000 once damages from the party are assessed. The reveller said: “There were around 100 people at the bash in total — and at the end of the night scores of glasses had been smashed. It wasn’t bad behaviour or anything — it was just people in high spirits and a little the worse for wear. “An expensive painting also got ripped off the wall and there was a bit of damage to plaster and flooring. “Some of the players were totally gone. One actually wet his pants and didn’t seem to know where he was. * “The life and soul of the bash was Rio Ferdinand. He was laughing and joking and dancing behind the bar with staff. “Meanwhile Ronaldo was trying to get help in texting some girl he had his eye on. “It was a brilliant party and the wine and champagne never stopped flowing. It must work out about £400 per person — so it’s just as well these guys earn a fortune.” The remainder of the bill was made up in service charges and VAT.
