Manchester United are one of the most recognisable clubs in world football, although they have suffered a massive drop-off in form since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since their legendary manager stepped down in 2013, while their Carabao Cup triumph in 2023 was the first trophy won by Man Utd since 2017.
However, they remain the English club with the largest fanbase across the world.
Despite Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s acquisition of a minority stake at Old Trafford, Man Utd are still owned by the Glazers, who have been in charge since May 2005.
Below, FootballTransfers runs through how much Man Utd have spent since the Glazers joined.
