A new report into Manchester United's finances has revealed just how much the club have saved from the departure of Wayne Rooney - despite handing him a £10million 'golden handshake'. Former Red Devils skipper Rooney left the club to rejoin Everton this summer after a 13-year stint which saw him become the club's record goalscorer when he passed Sir Bobby Charlton's mark of 249 goals in January.
Manchester United have saved £31million by paying off Wayne Rooney. The Red Devils gave Rooney £10m in the summer when he left the club to join boyhood heroes Everton. Rooney had been at the club for 13 years and became the club's record goalscorer, beating Sir Bobby Charlton's record of 249 in January. But despite this payout, the club have saved £31million in seeing the former England skipper depart with two years left on his deal, according to the report from Collins Sarri Statham.
It's a good time to invest in Manchester United , according to stock market experts - no matter how the team do on the pitch this season. A report from traders Collins Sarri Statham has recommended to investors that they buy stock in the Premier League side, who are a "different" proposition from rival clubs. And what's more, they say that success on the pitch will not have an impact on the business side of the club.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
