United, whose top players include Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, are currently joint top of the English Premier League and have qualified for the Champions League after winning the second-tier Europa League last season.

Controlled by the American Glazer family, United forecast revenue of between £575 million and £585 million in 2017-18.

That would be broadly in line with record revenue of £581 million ($782.8 million) in the year to 30 June.

United reported core profit of £199.8 million in the year. That figure was likely to slip to between £175-185 million in the current year.
