Manchester United’s debt is under the spotlight once again after news that the Glazer family had reduced it by a further £60 million. The Glazer’s retired a substantial amount in bonds which means United’s collective debt currently sits at just under £360 million in total.

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has dropped a hint that he would be willing to sign a new contract at the club.
