Today I heard a sorrowful news from TV. They said that Malcolm Glazer has an enormous debt when he was aquiring Manutd back then. They said the debt was up to around 700 million pounds. I can't even imagine money that much. For the state, Manutd is already back the stadium Theater of Dream for the loan. As if that doesn't enough, Manutd is ready to sell their star palyers, including Rooney! This problem is getting worst than ever because UEFA will generate a new rule for Champions League soon. The rule is going to be set like this: every club that has debt more than UEFA tolerated, the club can't attend the Champoins League. This is very serious problem, especially for Manutd. What do you think guys?

I don't think it's likely that Manchester United will fold. However, I do think it's important for clubs to manage their finances properly - it doesn't serve anyone's interests to have bankrupt organisations in the professional leagues. Whilst I hope United are okay (even as an LFC fan!), I wouldn't mind seeing Glazer lose his investment and end up on the street!

I wouldn't mind seeing Glazer on the streets too especially if Utd cannot win the title this season.

I see that most people likely to refuse Glazer in United. Maybe this case will show the bright side I hope.

As long as the team continues to do well the debt is manageable. If you look at the likes of Portsmouth the reason they have come into trouble due to debts is because they are not performing on the pitch and sit bottom of the league, With the squad United have we will always be up there at the top.

Yes, I agree with you. But that's not where the problem lies I think. United is in probable crisis because of their debt, United is told to sell some of their star players. And how they can win the EPL with out Rooney, Berba and Vidic for example. Moreover, UEFA is to set a confusing rule, that clubs which have untolerable amount of debt cannot play in Champoins League.

Manchester United have not been told to sell anyone, this is just media speculation caused by interest in United's players. We all know about the interest from Spain for Nemanja Vidic who has said he wants to stay at Old Trafford. Another point on the Champions League is that this is something UEFA have talked about as a possibility and nothing is in place, I am confident that if it were to come in then United would be in a decent enough position to still play in the Champions League.

They have already sold their big player CR7 to madrid... Remaining players are Rooney and berbatov....They just now bought valencia... If they are gonna sell all the three, then thats all, no more united... I'm a big fan of manchester united, but since they sold ronaldo, i don't concentrate much.. United cannot win this years champions league if they are not in full form and they have to get ready with their big players

Well, I guess Sir Alex is still the best, especially in training the young players to become a star. There are a lot of star players he produced already. But as you say, if they start selling berbatov and rooney, there will be no more united. On top of that, the news said that even vidic is available for sale now! What a mess! Anyway, the sale of Ronaldo seems can't pay off the debt.

It's very hard for me to imagine such a prestigious football team as Manchester United coming to an end. I must admit, they are no longer at the level they used to be. Don't get me wrong, they are still one of the best in the world, but it seems as though they lack that sparkle they once had
