The value of Manchester United is estimated to be around 3.1 billion euros, equal to approximately $3.5 billion in US currency. Though the 20-time champions ranked sixth among England’s soccer clubs this past season, the team maintains 26 global sponsorship deals along with a collection of regional sponsors and a host of partner companies in the media and finance sectors.
