Netflix and Amazon Prime are ‘vying to secure a fly-on-the-wall documentary about Manchester United’, with a series about Erik ten Hag’s side likely to cost ‘millions’
Streaming giants Netflix and Amazon Prime have reportedly entered a bidding war over a fly-on-the-wall documentary about Manchester United.
It comes after the success of Amazon’s All Or Nothing series that has followed Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham, as well as Netflix shows such as Sunderland Till I die.
The last few months at Old Trafford would have given a film crew plenty of drama, with dramatic results on the pitch, a saga over Cristiano Ronaldo’s future and a manager struggling to sign players.
According to reports in the Sun, Amazon Prime and Netflix are both willing to spend ‘millions’ to secure a United documentary, with Barcelona also a target.

‘So far United haven’t given the idea the green light. But the interest remains strong and is unlikely to go away.’
‘Producers have made great play of the fact that a programme would be a chance for the directors to show a different side to their role at the club, much like the way Arsenal’s owners did in All or Nothing.’
