Tom Cruise 'Planning Manchester Derby Visit'

Tom Cruise is planning to get to the Manchester derby on Sunday, even if it means travelling by private jet or helicopter to get there.

The A-lister is currently in the UK filming All You Need Is Kill and is desperate to see the game after hearing about it from pal David Beckham.

But as he is based in Herefordshire, he will need to make a 200 mile journey north to be at Etihad Stadium in time for kick-off.

To make sure his plan goes without a hitch, he has spent the last week planning the trip with officials at the stadium.

Tom Cruise is reportedly planning to get to the Manchester derby on Sunday

A source told the Sun: "Tom's filming on Saturday, the match is a lunchtime kick-off and he had to be in London for the premiere of his film Jack Reacher on Monday. We've been working out whether to get a jet or helicopter or go by road. Tom's on a very tight schedule but is desperate to see the match."

But don't expect to see Tom cheering on either the reds or the blues, as he is apparently going as a "fan of sport" rather than to see either side win.

Tom isn't the only Hollywood star who will be making the trip up to the game, as his co-star Robert Duvall is also planning to be part of the challenge of getting to the game.
