Manchester United Football Club, also known as Man United, Man Utd, or simply United, is a professional football team with its home stadium located in Old Trafford in Greater Manchester, England. The club plays in the Premier League, which is the top tier of the English football league structure.

Newton Heath LYR Football Club, also known as the Red Devils, was established in 1878. In 1902, the organization’s name was changed to Manchester United. The club moved to Old Trafford, its current stadium, in 1910 after briefly playing there in Clayton, Manchester.

The record number of League titles, FA Cups, League Cups, and FA Community Shields won by Manchester United is 20, 12, and 6, respectively. They have three European Cup/UEFA Champions League titles under their belts, along with one each of the UEFA Europa League, UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, UEFA Super Cup, Intercontinental Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup. They became the first English club to win the European Cup in 1968, under the direction of Matt Busby, and ten years after eight of the club’s players perished in the Munich air disaster.

The club’s longest-tenured and most successful manager is Sir Alex Ferguson, who between 1986 and 2013 won 38 trophies, including 13 league titles, five FA Cups, and two Champions League championships. Under Ferguson, the club won the Premier League, FA Cup, and UEFA Champions League for the first time in English football history during the 1998–99 campaign. By winning the UEFA Europa League in 2016–17 under José Mourinho, they joined a select group of five clubs that have claimed victories in each of the first three major UEFA club tournaments: the Champions League, Europa League, and Cup Winners’ Cup.

Manchester United competes against Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Leeds United. Manchester United is one of the most popular football clubs in the world. With an annual revenue of €676.3 million, Manchester United was the highest-earning football club in the world in 2016–17. In 2019, it was ranked third in terms of valuation, with a value of £3.15 billion ($3.81 billion). After being listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1991, the club was taken private in 2005 following a purchase by American entrepreneur Malcolm Glazer valued at nearly £800 million, of which more than £500 million in debt was incurred by the club.  Although the Glazer family still owns and controls the club in its entirety, some of its shares were listed on the New York Stock Exchange as of 2012.

final thoughts

Manchester United are one of the world’s most popular and successful teams, and although they haven’t won much since Sir Alex retired they are still a force to be reckoned with. Ten Hag also seems to be turning the tide in their favour and I don’t think it will be long until they are challenging for trophies again. They have one of the best S05 players in the form of Bruno Fernandes, and they also have a young player in Sancho who really suits the scoring matrix if he can get more regular minutes. Overall a full stack from Manchester United should do well especially if they continue to improve.
