Forbes announced that Manchester United is the most valuable soccer team in the world with estimated value around US $1,453 million and also the most profitable football club in the world with a $92 million in operational income (EBIT).
Other team that has the most value change (growth) is Olympic Lyon beating out all other team include Manchester United with a 6% growth from last year.
What i fear is that Manchester United has 84% debt/value ratio beating out Arsenal’s despite The Gunners had spent a lot of money building the new stadium. Is this means that the club’s growth leveraged by a huge amount of debt? If it is, then the management board must be in stress because then they will need a huge profit this year before the closing accounting period to keep the debt ratio ‘safe’. From what i know, this is dangerous and had successfully killed many businesses. Ouch, no fun.
