Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will reportedly be paid around £150,000 to give a 60-minute speech at a business event in Dubai.

The 72-year-old Scotsman has been offering his knowledge on management and leadership in lectures after retiring from his role at Old Trafford last year.

According to the Daily Star, Ferguson will pocket around £2,600 a minute during an hour's talk as keynote speaker during this year's prestigious Arabian Business Awards in Dubai on November 10.

It is believed that Ferguson will deliver his speech at the JW Marriott Marquis, and will also take part in a question and answer session in the Arabian Business Conference the next morning.
