The English Premier League champions also said sponsorship had increased by more than 52% and added they expected an overall annual income of £360m.

However, total operating expenses for the third quarter increased 18.6% year-on-year to £79m.

Wages also rose 25.1% to £44.9m due to the impact of new signings - including Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa - renegotiated contracts and the growth of United's commercial team.
