Manchester United debt biggest in Europe by €200 million

Jan 12, 2017 17:25:29


A 25 per cent increase on last year means the Old Trafford outfit's debt is comfortably the biggest in Europe but is balanced by huge revenues


Manchester United have €200 million more debt than any other European football club, according to new figures released by UEFA.

Ibrahimovic: I conquered England in three months

The Club Licensing Benchmarking Report from European football's governing body, which covers the 2015 financial year, lists United's debt to be €536m - significantly more than the next club on the list, Benfica, with €336m.

United's figure is also an increase of 25 per cent on the previous 12 months, bucking trends across Europe of falling debts year-on-year for the past five years that UEFA attributes in part to its Financial Fair Play regulations.
