The shocking amount the Glazers’ Manchester United now owe in transfer instalments revealed



| Last Updated:


A new report has revealed just how much Manchester United now owe in transfer instalments, as well as how much that amount has increased since the Glazer family took control of the club.

Posting on X, football finance expert Kieran Maguire has outlined the staggering increase in transfer fees owed by United since the Glazers took control of Manchester United.

The Glazer family would complete their full takeover of the club in June 2005, adopting a strategy of prioritising paying for transfers in transfer instalments.

As a result of this, in 2006, the Glazers’ Manchester United owed £7 million in transfer fees, the amount owed now stands at a jaw-dropping £364 million, an increase of 5100% since 2006.

One of the most notable increases is that in 2021 United owed £136 million, but with the sea of big money buys over the last three years, that number has increased by £228 million to the aforementioned £364 million.

Of these big-money buys, several have failed to result in on-field success for United, with the club now looking to sell multiple assets.

Both Jadon Sancho (£73 million) and Antony (£82 million) are believed to have been offered to Saudi Pro League clubs, with United setting their price for each of the wingers.

Casemiro (£60 million) is also believed to be seen as available by United if the right fee is offered.

Finally, Raphaël Varane is out of contract in the summer, with United running the risk of the Frenchman leaving for free, despite being in negotiations to keep him at the club.
