Ahead of tonight’s highly anticipated EFL Cup semi-final first-leg between Nottingham Forest and Manchester United, we’re taking a look at the values of both squads, with United’s squad being worth almost £400m more. 

Forest Team Worth Just Over £310 Million

When the Reds got promoted to the Premier League last summer, they were very busy in the transfer market, signing over 20 players. They spent a lot of money, and as we enter the second half of the season, it seems to be paying off.

They’ve gone from being relegation threatened to going four unbeaten and rising to 13th in the table. There’s still a long way to go but evidently Steve Cooper’s recruitment is working.

United Worth Almost £750 Million

United have a squad full of talent, and there’s no secret why they’re one of the most in form teams in England. With their tricky attack, and rapidly improving defence they’ll pose a real threat for Forest over the two legs.

Their most recent signing is Wout Weghorst, who has signed on loan from Burnley, and he could be looking for his first United goal at the City Ground.
