Although Manchester United is number 6 in the English Premier League according to a report by CIES Football Observatory Jose’s side is top of the table when it comes to money spenders.
The Red Devils are the most expensive side in the history of Europe’s Top-5 Leagues with a squad valued of £626 mil.
Despite the free transfer of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, United did well to become the most expensive club thanks to record breaking signings from Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Baily which added £161 mil to their last season’s squad putting them well ahead of second-placed Real Madrid whose current squad value (Including Bale & Ronaldo) is less than Manchester United.
Read Madrid in on No.2 with £535 and Manchester City in on No.3 with £533 mil.
At least Manchester United have shirt sales if not points to match their expensive squad.
