MANCHESTER UNITED owners, the Glazer family, have taken an estimated £1.1billion from the club since arriving in 2005.

The Red Devils’ dreadful start to the Premier League season has further heightened the scrutiny of their unpopular owners.

United fans protested Brighton ahead of their opener – and figures have been revealed by the Swiss hike Make it easy to understand followers’ anger.

They estimate the Glazers have taken a staggering £1.1billion from the club over the past 17 years.

That figure includes a staggering £743 million in interest payments.

Debt repayments account for a further £147m, while owners have paid £166m in dividends – £133m of that in the last decade alone.

United’s expenses have never exceeded the club’s income in the past decade.

Directors have been paid £55m since the Glazers’ arrival, while £23m in ‘management fees’ have been taken out of the club.

The £154m the Glazers have squeezed out of United over the past decade is more than any other Prem club.

For comparison, Manchester City owners have invested £684m of their own money over the same period.


While Chelsea have invested £516m and Aston Villa £506m.

Casual observers might point to the £1.4billion Man United have spent on transfers over the past decade.

But that’s money generated entirely as revenue by the club itself, rather than owner speculation.

United’s money spent on transfers has been poorly invested – with the signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho helping their annual wage bill rise from £323m to £387m – with no results improved.

The Red Devils’ performance on the pitch has suffered immensely, from being title winners in 2013 to bottom in August 2022.

But off the pitch, too, United have fallen behind their rivals due to a lack of investment in infrastructure.

United’s net investment over the last decade is £136m – less than Fulham, Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester City.

While Tottenham have made £1.4bn in net investment after moving stadiums over the past decade.
