A huge story for fans of American sports saw Tom Brady leave New England Patriots for Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brady is without question the biggest name in NFL and America was stunned when it was announced he would be joining the Bucs, owned by the Glazer family.
It was only natural that, at some point, Manchester United fans would wonder if Brady joining the Bucs would affect them.
However, The Evening Standard claims there’s no need to worry.
They reported that some fans were concerned Brady’s whopping £25m p/y contract may be part funded by United in some way, but The ES suggest that the finances are entirely separate.
The Bus are apparently within their normal spending and NFL clubs operate under a salary cap.
NFL fans who follow the Buccaneers will be delighted with the news, even though nobody knows when the world’s biggest sports — football including with the future of the current Premier League campaign unknown — and it remains to be seen if United will look to make a similar statement when the transfer window opens.
