MU was stunned because of Covid-19: “Blown” 1 billion pounds in 1 month
The Covid-19 pandemic is causing the world to stand down with a series of industries that are seriously affected, with unpredictable consequences. Recently, this storm of the disease has also affected the stock market seriously, causing MU‘s value to plummet to 2 billion pounds, according to The Sun.
Just over a month ago, “Red Devil” was valued at £ 3 billion on the stock market. But since the corona virus outbreak, their share price has dropped to just over £ 9.92 per share on Monday (March 16), compared with £ 16.53 per share earlier this year. Thus, this pandemic has “blown away” 1 billion MU in the blink of an eye.
For comparison, MU has also spent about 1 billion pounds on the transfer market since the last time they took the throne in the Premier League in the 2012/13 season. However, it was not until the transfer period of the 2019/20 season that the “Reds” seemed to get what they needed, with quality deals like Harry Maguire and especially Bruno Fernandes.
This is not the first time the value of MU on the stock market has dropped so much. Previously, the value of “Red Devils” once dropped more than 1 billion pounds after the disappointing 2018/19 season. However, this number comes after a period of 1 year. In August 2018, MU was valued at £ 3.51 billion, by June 2019, the value of the team decreased to £ 2.25 billion.
MU was taken over by the Glazer family in 2005 for about 790 million pounds. But American owners are increasingly being opposed by fans, leading to protests both inside and outside the stadium. In the past year, there has been interesting from a Saudi billionaire, ready to offer £ 3 billion to buy the club but everything is nowhere to be found.
Recently, the European Football Observing and Research Center (CIES) has priced MU in the 6th position in the world, the lowest in the “billion” group: 1,007 billion euros. Above MU are 3 English teams, Chelsea (5th – 1,008 billion euros), Man City (2nd – 1,361 billion euros) and Liverpool (1st – 1,405 billion euros). https://thenewssports.net/
