The World's Biggest Cash Machine

by Chris Blackhurst

ISBN: 9781035011193

'Jaw-dropping' - Daily Mail
'A gripping tale, full of insight. Blackhurst is an enormously talented writer' - City A.M.

Manchester United is more than just a football team; it's an institution. But, when the Glazer family took charge in 2005, they immediately plunged it into record levels of debt. Their reign has coincided with fan protests and a decline in Manchester United's fortunes on the pitch . . . if not on the balance sheet.

In The World's Biggest Cash Machine, award-winning reporter Chris Blackhurst charts the history of Manchester United, from its start as a community-driven club to the sale of a minority stake to British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe.

In this captivating account, informed by interviews with key figures behind the scenes, Blackhurst charts the gripping story of the world's biggest football club - as well as exploring the wider transformation of the Premier League into a playground for billionaire owners.

'Packed with insights and details that will both amaze and appal you . . . if it doesn't make you angry, you need to check your pulse' - Oliver Bullough, author of Butler to the World, on Too Big to Jail
