The Manchester United goalkeeper joined Jadon Sancho, Anthony Martial and other football players at The Ivy, an expensive establishment offering traditional English dishes & cocktails. The dinner took place on Tuesday, with the team hosting a bonding meal in the city centre.
After leaving the restaurant at around 10.30pm, Mr De Gea discovered his £150,000 Aston Martin Vantage had its front wheels clamped.
The vehicle was clamped due to it being out of tax, with Mr De Gea forced to take a taxi home from the city centre venue.
It is also reported that Luke Shaw endured his own parking frustrations, returning to his Range Rover only to see it had been given a parking ticket.
Phil Jones’s £160,000 Bentley Bentayga was also left with a ticket.

It comes as Mr De Gea made an early return from his break ahead of Manchester United’s opening game of the Premier League 2021/2022 season.
He told the club website: “I feel great, really strong, both physically and mentally.
“I’m eager for the season to get under way and for us to start well.
“We all have to be united together, all of us at 100 per cent, and yes, it’s a vitally important season ahead.”

Marcus Rashford wasn’t in attendance with the rest of his colleagues as he continues the road to recovery following shoulder surgery.
The England hero had treatment on his shoulder, which he admitted affected his performances at Euro 2020.
He could now miss up to three months of the new season.
But Mr Rashford told supporters that everything went well and he is “feeling good” after Friday’s surgery.
