The journalist wrote his latest article for The Chronicle where he stated that the club are understood to be able to cope financially with the Premier League’s suspension. The top flight, amongst other major football competitions, has been postponed ‘indefinitely’ until it is safe to resume (Sky Sports).

Ryder’s report also mentions the fact that the club’s financial figures for this year’s accounts have not yet been released and are due to be revealed in July.

Last term, United made an £18.6 million profit, following their first season back in England’s top division, as per the club’s official website. Amongst the sources of income that rose were from the media, commercially and through turnover, with operating expenses falling.
