Manchester United announced a record turnover of £648.4m for last season, with the wage bill falling by £52.8m.
The Old Trafford club’s long-term debt remains at £538 million as the Glazer family decided not to withdraw a dividend from the club in the 2022/23 season.
The wage bill fell to £331.4m, according to the figures, largely because United did not take part in the Champions League last season.
Commercial revenue exceeded £300m for the first time, but despite the record revenue the club still posted a loss of £42.1m for 2022–23.
In Erik ten Hag’s first season as manager, United returned to the Champions League with third place in the Premier League and ended a six-year trophy drought by winning the Carabao Cup.
