The club’s CEO Ed Woodward has revealed the club’s quarterly accounts, which covers July to September of this year, earlier this afternoon in a conference call with some high-profile investors, with the Old Trafford side announcing a revenue of £141 million – which works out as a rise of 17%.
Woodward also revealed the club’s current away kit is the fastest-selling in the club’s long history but the figures detailed on Januzaj are probably what caused the most surprise amongst supporters:

Januzaj was once touted as the club’s next superstar, and was given Ryan Giggs’s coveted No.11 jersey – but more than £17 million? That seems like a pretty good deal for United, don’t you think?
What do you make of the fee?
