Real Sociedad have been performing impressively in recent years but there is a long way to the financial prowess of Manchester United, who had a turnover of €580.3 million last season compared to the Spanish club's €74.1 million (18/19).

The Premier League club's wage bill stood at more than five times that of Sociedad, at €323.8 million to €64 million.

Manchester United spent €140 million on amortisation while Sociedad's figure reached just €17 million.
