With Manchester United moving season ticket renewal deadline from 20th May to June 1st, this could be a strong hit that Jose Mourinho‘s arrival is nearing.
The Portuguese manager is known for targeting big and big targets will cost big money these days in football, unless it’s a big target free agent like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but that doesn’t happen often.
Louis van Gaal might have spent a big bunch of millions, but the team also sold many players and Louis van Gaal’s net spend isn’t as big as people think having spent around £250m in 4 transfer windows.
Jose Mourinho asking for hundreds of millions would be something plenty will bet on if he arrives, here’s why:
- Aiming for world class signings
Maybe Louis van Gaal was okay with signing a few good talents and wait to see how they turn out but Mourinho won’t give the Manchester United board such a luxury.
He will demand that the team signs the best players in the world and he will most probably be aiming for breaking records when it comes to players.
2. United’s profits coming along very well
Aside from the great amount money the Premier League clubs will acquire from TV Rights, Manchester United have topped the football world when it comes to profits in the 14-15 season with $190m according to Forbes, ahead of Real Madrid who made $162m.
