Manchester United is predicting record revenues for 2018-19, despite having dropped off the early pace in the new Premier League season.
United today said that it expected revenue to be between £615m and £630m in the year to next June. The club reported revenues of £590m in the year to the end of June, up 1.5 per cent on the prior year.
There was also a slight year-on-year increase in commercial revenue to £276.1m, with sponsorship providing a £1.7m gain.
Commenting on the latest results, Executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward added: “Our increased revenue expectation for the year demonstrates our continued strong long-term financial performance which underpins everything we do and allows us to compete for top talent in an increasingly competitive transfer market.”
