In line with their guidance, Manchester United have presented a record-breaking revenue for 2019.

As expected, Manchester United have presented a record-breaking revenue for their fiscal year of 2019. 

In line with the management's guidance, the club had a total revenue of £627.1 million - up from £589.8 million in 2018.

This makes Manchester United the first English club with a total revenue of more than £600 million.

The rise in revenue comes mainly from broadcasting and is "primarily due to the new UEFA Champions League broadcasting rights agreement," according to United's statement.
