Manchester United are likely to splash the cash this summer and give new
boss David Moyes solid ground to build his own squad after reports
revealed the club are set for a £100 million TV windfall over 2013/14.
Because a new domestic broadcast package comes into effect from August,
the Premier League is expected to increase its commercial revenues by
almost £600 million a year until 2016.
This means United, who had 25 of their 38 Premier League matches
broadcasted last season, are set to increase their TV revenues from £60.8
million to over £100 million in just 12 months.
The package doesn’t even take into account overseas revenue – which is
still to be agreed upon – and so Moyes has a lot of cash available with
much freedom to spend.
Indeed, many Premier League betting fans agree that if United are to win
the title next term they need to strengthen – especially in midfield and
defence. The goalkeeper position is now assured but Moyes requires a
centre-half to really solidify that position and maybe a new left-back
with Patrice Evra waning.
Another covering midfielder – such as PSV’s Kevin Strootman – would be a
great inclusion to the side and Moyes is likely to buy a striker if Wayne
Rooney gets the transfer he reportedly desires.
Because of the new TV rights package both Manchester City and Chelsea –
who already boast strong financial might – will buy players in the summer
as will Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool.
What United need is a strong start to next season and fans who follow the
Champions League betting news also understand just how important a solid
European campaign is.
For United to kick on from this year’s title success we need to bring
players in early and bed them into the culture of the club before August.
Moyes has more money this summer than he spent over his entire Everton
tenure and the boss must make the right moves before other clubs do.
