City news in 250 words: Thursday 22 April

MANCHESTER UNITED HAS COME TOP in the Forbes magazine list of the 20 most valuable football clubs in the world. This is the sixth year running that United has took the top spot. Forbes values United at £1.19bn, Real at £859m, and Arsenal, in third, at £767m. Forbes uses data on income streams such as broadcast rights, sponsorship and sales of tickets and merchandise.

STEVIE WONDER WILL PLAY IN MANCHESTER as part of his small UK summer tour. The 59-year-old soul legend will perform at the MEN Arena on June 29, straight after his appearance at Glastonbury festival. Tickets go on sale this Friday.

AN EX-PUPIL WITH A GRUDGE who violently assaulted his former headteacher has been jailed. Jermaine Carl Bullen, 26, attacked Kieran Heakin, 57, in a Rochdale restaurant last February. Bullen walked past the victim and said: "You'll remember me, you beat me up when I was six. I've been waiting all these years to meet up with you," before launching into an unprovoked attack. He's been sentenced to three years in prison.
