After “turbulent season”, club chiefs will seek to reduce wage bill and offload players.

New kit design released today pays homage to the United’s treble-winning season when in 1998/99.

With commercial revenues flat, it was perhaps no surprise that United rolled out its new adidas home kit for the 2019/20 season and talked up shifting some product in the Asia-Pacific region.

The club recorded a 3.4 percent increase in revenues to £152.1 million for the third quarter compared to the corresponding period last year.

Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) for the period was £41.2 million, a decrease from £45.7 million a year earlier.
