Manchester United now has about 7.7 million fans on Facebook. PS: Facebook is banned in certain parts of China and in a few Islamic countries :D
The figure of 7.7 Million definitely exceeds most of the famous football clubs' fan base on Facebook. For eg Chelsea has only 3.3 M facebook fans. Real Madrid (7.6M) are quite close to us. However, there is still a considerable gap between Barcelona (8.6 M) and United. But having said United only recently launched their facebook page, it's not at a bad going for us! I'm sure in a matter of months, United will have a higher no. of supporters than Barcelona on Facebook.
Other famous Manchester United fans include:
1) David Beckham - Ex United and England Mid-fielder. (As if no one knew it? xD)
2) Usain Bolt - Famous Jamaican sprinter and 3 times Olympic and World Gold Medalist.
Bolt has admitted that he would fancy playing for United one day! Let's hope he does!
