Manchester United is one of the richest clubs in the world, and is on pace to have its richest year on record.

The Red Devils aren’t just going to break their own record if they keep it up, they’ll shatter the Premier League record by hauling in approximately $760 million in one year.

Sky Sports says the brand’s big figure was aided by a return to the UEFA Champions League and its bumper new deal with Adidas.

Parts of their revenue rise were up an absurd 65 percent, which is even more remarkable considering it’s not like they went up to a couple mill... but stacks of millions.

Where’s the roof? The Red Devils are already in the extreme upper echelon of world clubs, but Ed Woodward and his administration continue to find boost after boost.

Maybe they will buy back Ronaldo.
