United - Considerably Richer Than You!

United - Considerably Richer Than You!

Forbes magazine has come up with a fascinating fact.

Apparently, despite the strife, United remain the richest club in the world.

Figures from Forbes declare that Manchester United have assets worth a staggering £1.24 billion.

Just for the purpose of this article we`ll ignore the fact that the Glazer family has £700 million of debts secured against it!

Not being funny but i dont think its that simple to ''ignore'' a £700 mill debt. The term 'clutching at straws' springs to mind.

No doubt that the club is worth that much. That's why the banks continue to support the club without a protest.

Rd89 - not sure if that would be the case mate. You certainly wouldn't be as heavily indebted if they hadn't take over, but don't forget, united were a PLC. That means you have to pay dividends to shareholders based on profits, and all spending has to be scrutinised by the PLC board. fergie never did like having to justify his spending to the board, and I'm sure he didn't like the ammount of money goingg out of the club to it's shareholders. I'm sure the Glazer's takeover (which made perfect economic sense prior to the crash) was welcomed by Fergie as it meant he was more or less given carte blanche by the Glazers. And let's face it, it worked for the first few seasons, as you managed to keep the spending levels high enough to refresh the team, and several titles followed. It's only now that cold economic reality has dawned and the debt has come back to bite you on the arse.
