Brexit causes Manchester United’s debt to soar

Manchester United are on track to achieve record revenues despite their absence from this season’s Champions League, although their net debt has increased by 27.1% to £409.3m due to ‘strengthening dollar’ and the post-Brexit collapse of the pound.

United returned to the top of the Deloitte Football Money League for the first time since 2005 last month and on Thursday they announced record profits for any quarter in their history.
