Manchester United 'Have £274 Million Transfer Budget' This Summer

Manchester United 'Have £274 Million Transfer Budget' This Summer

Manchester United reportedly have a £274 million transfer budget to spend this summer, in news that should excite the club's fans.

According to Soccerex, who produce the Football Finance 100 list to break down all the finances of the world's top clubs, United have some serious funds in the bank thanks in part to the massive revenue coming in from various commercial and sponsorship deals.

The 'cash in the bank' uses well-connected sources to determine just how much clubs are able to spend and for United, we're talking nearly £300 million.

In the two transfer windows he has had in the United hotseat, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spent a total of £220 million on the likes of Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes.
