Man Utd squad cost compared to Brentford revealed… with Erik ten Hag's flops worth EIGHT times more despite loss | The SunAugust 14, 2022
MANCHESTER UNITED'S flops cost nearly EIGHT times more than the Brentford heroes who humiliated them.
The Red Devils were battered 4-0 at the Gtech Community Stadium on an embarrassing evening.
Their first-half collapse included two horrendous blunders from David de Gea, a moaning Cristiano Ronaldo and resulted in a triple substitution at half-time.
But the alarming stat posted by Sky Sports during the second half showed just how impressive Brentford and their recruitment has been compared to the shambles at Old Trafford.
United's starting XI cost approximately £424million.
That included the world-record £85m for Harry Maguire and £73m on the anonymous Jadon Sancho.

By comparison, Thomas Frank's 11 brilliant Bees stars arrived in West London for a grand total of £55m.
And the four goalscorers – Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo – all came in for just £10m.
