The US tycoon is likely to focus first on Manchester United's TV rights in his quest for profits. Richard Gillis reports.

Based on the assumption that there are very few dumb billionaires, Malcolm Glazer is working to a clever plan.

Broadcast rights to Manchester United games are currently sold alongside those of every other Premier League club as a collective. Last autumn BSkyB paid £1.1bn for exclusive live Premiership rights in the UK until 2007, with the BBC adding £105m for the highlights package. International rights have been sold for £290m over the three years to the end of the 2006/07 season. Most of this comes from Asia, a territory that accounts for a major slice of United's estimated 75m global fan base.

Well I guess that all the carriers in Europe have to say is that they will only buy the rights to all of the non-Manu games, then let the far east purchase the others and see what Glazer has to say. . :)

I think he may have a point when you consider....

"The TV income of Serie A side AC Milan totalled EUR134.4m (£89m) last year. A significant proportion of this comes from Sky Italia, with which it has negotiated separately for live rights to its home games.

In Italy, 60% of all television money goes to three teams: Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan. In Spain's La Liga TV cash is focused on just two clubs: Real Madrid and Barcelona. In 2004/05, Real Madrid will take EUR52m (£35.8m) from domestic rights, 22.4% of the total; United, in contrast, is expected to earn £31m from the Premier League deal, only 7.8% of the total."

Yes and if anyone can explain to me how that is good for football, please go ahead.

These top teams have a far greater chance of raising huge revenue from other advertising and sponsorship, the gap between the top and middle of the league is huge as it is, do we really need someone trying to make it worse.

Again you're correct...

I was only looking at the financial side - not the football side, sorry (bet Glazer is too!)

Stick to my cheapo sport - F1 - you know the one where Schum earns £38 million a year - dooh!

If only I could kick a ball or drive a car......

how on the face of the Earth can the EU come to the conclusion that one unified deal is bad for the consumer???

say if Man U, Arsenal, and Chelsea breakaway, and they sell to Setanta (just for arguments sake). then imagine Setanta were to charge £10 a month for each, thats £30 if u want the big three. now my maths aint v good, but say that only three games from every five are broadcast (cos of Saturday 3pms)

==> what ur probably left with is ALOT less games then the SKY deal.

Could someone actually work that out?!!!!!
