The former Manchester United star seems to keep good company

Gary Neville has rented out his entire hotel to Madonna, according to reports.

And that means the Manchester United icon is set for a lucrative payday as a result of that deal.

Neville owns a huge stake in the Stock Exchange Hotel in Manchester, along with former team-mate Ryan Giggs.

Madonna has, per The Sun, hired out the venue while she rehearses for her upcoming tour.

The Queen of Pop and her entourage want to relax during their down time, which is why they've hired every room in the place.

Madonna arrived in the north of England earlier this week with huge three box vans carrying her family behind her own Range Rover.

She also touched down with a big amount of luggage, including three Peleton exercise bikes to keep her in shape.

As for the hotel, it is no stranger to hosting A-list celebrities.

Mick Jagger, Pink, Shania Twain and Dua Lipa are just some of the celebrities who have stayed there.

A quick Google search of the place shows it has 4.4 stars out of a possible five from 192 reviews.

It is a five-star hotel and is close to Primark - in case Madonna fancies bagging herself a bargain.

The 65-year-old has also rented a venue nearby to host full-scale rehearsals of her show.

It is due to begin at London's 02 Arena this Saturday for a four-night run, with further shows in Europe and America also pencilled in.

“Madonna is pulling out all the stops," a source is quoted as saying.

"A huge entourage, whole hotels, major venues for rehearsals for several days — nothing is being left to chance.

“You don’t get to be known as the Queen of Pop without doing it properly, which is exactly what this is.”

Meanwhile, regarding Neville, the former United star thinks Arsenal can now compete for this year's Premier League title.

The Gunners ended a run of 12 straight league losses against Manchester City on Sunday, with Gabriel Martinelli scoring the only goal of the game.

And Neville thinks Arsenal are now a side capable of lasting the course.

"I think they've got a big chance, Arsenal," he said.

"They've got to keep their players fit. They're 100 per cent better with Declan Rice in the middle of the pitch, without a shadow of a doubt.

"You want more from your centre-forwards, and it was hard for both of them [against City], but there's a question mark over whether that'll cause them problems in the end.

"They have to keep Rice fit, the idea of not playing Gabriel Magalhaes at the start of the season was an experiment that won't happen again.

"Those two centre-halves - Gabriel and William Saliba - were pivotal against City, they were outstanding playing against the best player in the world in that position [Erling Haaland].

"To beat City, and give [injured] Bukayo Saka a three-week rest, that could be a really good thing.

"The two centre-backs and Rice are the most important players to keep fit. They won't win the league without them.

"I was worried about the goalkeeper David Raya in the first half. He's averted a bit of a crisis there.

"If he conceded a goal from one of those moments, honestly you've seen it go badly.

"Hopefully he's gone home and reflected, he came out a lot better for the second half - but whatever Arteta said to them at half-time, they all came out better."

And Neville also doesn't think former club United will finish in the top five.

"I don't think Manchester United will finish in the top five this season... but they proved me wrong last season after having a very poor start," he claimed.

He added: "They've got some good lads who have come in and bought into the club.

"They've got some good lads who have come through the ranks.

"The big question mark at the moment is the stability that runs right through the club and it's not there."
