Manchester United is worth $3.32 billion according to Forbes' latest franchise valuations, and maybe the Premier League team got there by saving $150 at a time.
Or maybe, as The Sun suggests, they're merely "Cheap Devils."
Either way, United players are being discouraged from giving the shirts off their backs to fellow competitors or fans because "it's not cost effective," The Sun reported, quoting an unidentified club source.
Price tag: $149.99 per jersey.
Players — including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is paid almost $350,000 per week, and Paul Pogba, whose transfer cost United a record $119 million — are issued the same shirt ration to start the season: two with short sleeves and two with long sleeves.
“They are asked not to swap shirts so they don’t have to be replaced. It seems daft given how much the club is worth,” the source told The Sun.
In United's defense, although it is No. 5 on Forbes' franchises list, it carries' the highest debt load among the Top 25.
But it also should be mentioned that the 2015-16 season was the first in a 10-year, $1.1 billion (with a 'B') kit deal with adidas. We'll save you the math: That's an annual income that could buy 730,000 jerseys, give or take a few thousand, at $150 a pop.
