Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen
I doubt they have spent as much as Money City and Russian Blue. Abramovic, during his reign at Stamford Bridge, has spent almost £2BILLION on player purchases and salaries.
I cannot image Real has a larger a deficit than the two above mentioned, which - as I am sure will come as no surprise - is leading the PL in deficits
Man Utd has debt too, but they also make enough money to cover costs. This is not the case for Money City and Russian Blue. If those two were not given funds for 'free' from their owners, they'd have even larger deficits. I don't know Real accounts.
But .... FIFA Financial Fair Play will take effect from 2013/2014 season
If they were not a Football club Man U would not be trading.
