Gill: We’re Worth £1.25billion

David Gill has dismissed reports linking us to a sale, claiming the club is worth £1.25billion.

Forbes ranked us as the most valuable sporting franchise in the world, ahead of New York Yankees, Real Madrid and Dallas Cowboys.

“Well Forbes reckon we are the most valuable sporting franchise in the world…and they compare that with other football clubs, but also with the likes of the Dallas Cowboys and so on,” said Gill. “It [the valuation] is nearly $2 billion. Football is only going to get bigger. The World Cup gets bigger, the Euros get bigger, the Champions League gets bigger, the Premier League gets bigger. And so to be one of the leading clubs within that, we are going to benefit and make sure we continue to push forward.”

  11. fergie is the boss says:

    Vidic Is Titanium – with the PIK notes payed off that has put united in a much better footing, barca are not run great, they had a hard time paying their players and the monopoly that is going on in spain who would let the big 2 clubs implode. Much like scotland in celtic and rangers, with madrid and barca la liga is notnhing. Yes they are run by the fans, but barca much like the fascists run their own television deals, which is not allowed in england and it will never ever change.

    For united to be owned by the fans, some rich idiot would have to put aside 1.5 billon into the united coffers, hand a huge slice of the club back to the fans say 60%. Who would some idioit buy the club lose a fortune by giving the club to the fans, no one is that generous not even a rich united fan especially to give 60% of the keys back to the club.

    Jesus would do it. I remember at school, learning about how he hated tax collectors and markets etc. They say he’s coming again.

    It’s capitalism in’t it – so ungodly it’s untrue. The world is changing. Yeh Qatar got the world cup and Sarah Palin gets in the papers for picking her nose, but things are getting more transparent with wikileaks, political correctness, equality, accountability etc…Meanwhile Qatar have only just grasped capitalism – yeh welcome to the Century before last the gulf!

  38. The United Way says:

    Why do they not understand the a football club is not like other businesses?

    Mahcnester United is important to the people of Manchester and all over the world.

    They are just milking it for all it is worth … we didnt build the club as a community for it to be abused in that way!

  39. GoatinaUnitedShirt says:

    willie you dont mince your words do you, Cant wait for the game, I wouldnt miss it for a briskett

  40. Zibbie says:

    Wow when I get back from work I will read all the post from true Man Utd fan’s, life long and grew up playing the game. In the US we had to wake up and see our beloved teams and players turn into the “Entertainment Business” Big $$$$$$ for all. Free agency and the rest 30 years ago in Baseball and 25 years ago in the NFL. You have the Bosmann rule. I hope the Glazzers have a number in mind to sell with a time frame.

  41. dumbo says:

  42. willierednut says:

    Goat – I don’t mince about mate.

  43. smartalex says:

    I’ve been lambasted, I could just spit!

  44. smartalex says:

    Instead of everyone throwing comments at the same time, I suggest a barb -e-queue.

  45. MyCowIsTheBest says:
