Manchester United a bigger brand and can do things on a greater scale than Real Madrid despite limited on-pitch success, says Simon Jordan

Manchester United and Real Madrid are two of the giants of world football but Simon Jordan believes the Red Devils are just that bit bigger.

Unitedhave won just three major trophies since 2013, whereas Madrid have claimed five Champions Leagues and three La Liga titles in that time.

Despite such difference in success on the pitch, Jordan believes Erik ten Hags side are on top when it comes to their status in world football.

talkSPORTs Jim White couldnt believe such a claim had been made, to which Jordan replied: Well it is, but that doesnt mean that theyre the biggest achievers.

White said it was scandalous, before his co-host responded: That argument can be turned on its head by the very nature of Real Madrids achievements.

But Id still putManchester Unitedas a bigger iconic brand in football and in the hearts and minds of those around the world. Now, the Madrid fans will suck that in and think thats nonsense.

Danny Murphy was also in disagreement, but the former Crystal Palace chairman insisted: I do, I think that they are.

I think they have the capability to do things on a greater scale.

When Murphy asked if that was in terms of financial power, Jordan responded: Yes, but thats what Im talking about an economic powerhouse. An iconic imagery and a brand.

Success has been limited at United since Sir Alex Ferguson left nearly ten years ago.

They only have an FA Cup, Europa League and League Cup to show for their efforts, with Madrid winning something almost every season.

Ten Hags side make a return to club football on Wednesday night when theyface Burnleyin the Carabao Cup, live on talkSPORT.

They will be looking to go all the way in the competition, having not won a trophy since 2017.
