Manchester United announced record revenues of £648.4million for last season with their wage bill dropping by £52.8m.

The Old Trafford club’s long-term debt remains at £538million with the Glazer family deciding not to take a dividend out of the club during the 2022-23 season.

The wage bill went down to £331.4m, the figures revealed, mainly because United didn’t compete in the Champions League last season.

Commercial revenues exceeded £300m for the first time but despite the record revenues, the club still recorded a £42.1m loss for 2022-23. 

In Erik ten Hag’s first season as manager, United returned to Champions League football by finishing third in the Premier League and ended a six-year trophy drought by lifting the Carabao Cup.

United trumpeted record ticket sales and attendances in their latest accounts, as well as their £900m Adidas kit deal through until 2035.

United are projecting their revenues will rise to £680m next year following their return to the lucrative Champions League. Their previous highest revenues were £627m for the 2018-19 campaign. 

Erik Ten Hag’s side kept their hopes of getting out of their Champions League group alive with a 1-0 win over Copenhagen on Tuesday night.

Andre Onana made a crucial late penalty save to secure the win after Harry Maguire’s goal.
