Gill ‘comfortable’ with Man Utd finances

United’s debts currently stand at around £490million, following the Glazer family’s take-over of the club in 2005.

“We are comfortable with our financial structure,” chief executive Gill said.

He added: “We are producing record turnover and record profits and we can meet our obligations.

“We have been clear all along. There is money in the bank.

“Some people have not believed us but if a player is required to improve the squad and challenge for top honours, the money is there.

“That is still the case. We are not afraid to spend big money on players of a certain age.”

United have already spent around £50million this summer on David de Gea, Ashley Young and Phil Jones.
