SPÄTHERBST: Late fall might have begun for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, after her CDU and CSU Bundestag members rejected the man she chose to lead the parliamentary group. Volker Kauder, a close Merkel ally who has overseen the group for 13 years, lost in a secret ballot to challenger Ralph Brinkhaus.

Manchester United’s wage bill has ballooned to almost £300 million following increased salary payments from the Champions League and the arrival of Alexis Sanchez. United announced a profit of £44.1m for the 2017/18 season on the back of record revenues of £590m but the most eye-catching figure was a dramatic 12.3 per cent jump in wages to £295.9m. The sharp increase was primarily attributed to a rise in “player salary uplifts” relating to the club’s return to the Champions League last season, despite a dismal Round of 16 exit to Sevilla, and means United now have the second-highest earning squad in Europe behind Barcelona, whose 2016/17 wage bill stood at £336m. Although United removed Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Adnan Januzaj from their wage bill over the course of the last financial year, the signing of Sanchez from Arsenal in January in a £500,000-a-week deal, and the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, … [Read more...] about Manchester United wage bill balloons to almost £300m

0 Post a comment Monday, 20 August 2018 - Business by Duncan Foulkes - Business editor [email protected] Government must be brave and fearless in making tough decisions as the island continues to attract people and businesses to settle here. And everyone living here, from leading business people to the army of thousands of people who keep the island ticking, has the capacity to be an ambassador for the Isle of Man.Well-known Manx people such as Sam Barks, currently starring in Pretty Woman on Broadway, could be featured in lifesize cut-outs welcoming visitors at the airport.And prominent government figures such as chief minister Howard Quayle should not be afraid of ‘flying the flag’ by staying in the same hotels as captains of industry and world leaders.These were some of the points made by a group of prominent business figures gathered for the first of a series of Topical Talks.The event was sponsored by Manx Telecom who also sponsor Business … [Read more...] about Topical Talk business roundtable: Be brave to promote the island and we will back you all the way
