If this is not staggering to you, then you need to read it again. Even Manchester United haters like yours truly have to be flabbergasted by those numbers. Imagine the reinforcements that could be purchased to have made a real run in Europe instead of being nipped by Basel and playing in the Europa League in the name of servicing the owners’ debt to make the purchase of United.
All one can surmise is that United are truly screwed when Sir Alex Ferguson retires.
(American football fans, particularly those living in the Tampa area, might also want to be flabbergasted by this, as you might wonder how much this leaves the Glazers to spend on their NFL team.)
