Manchester United post record revenue of $780 million

United's worst performance of the season highlighted the deficiencies in Solskjaer's squad after an offseason when the club eschewed its recent fixation with making marquee signings, focusing instead on bringing in young, hungry British players more likely to buy into United's culture.

Manchester United (NYSE:MANU) warns that revenue will fall during this season for the first time in more than a decade as underperformance by the club on the pitch drags on results.

Solskjaer has made nine changes from the side that lost 2-0 at West Ham at the weekend, with 21-year-old defender Axel Tuanzebe named captain, rather than the more experienced Pogba. "Success means winning trophies". Daniel James joining from Swansea City and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace have both been top performers for United at the start of the season, with Welsh global Dan James picking up Manchester United's player of the month award.

"We were able to approach the window in a focused and disciplined way", Woodward said.

Former boss Jose Mourinho claimed United had got worse since he was sacked by Woodward last December.

Trump and Rouhani are both expected to attend the United Nations General Assembly next week. "I'm not looking to get into new conflict, but sometimes you have to", he said.

Spanish giant FC Barcelona last week reported 990 million euros ($1.1bn) in turnover for 2018-19 and expects to surpass one billion euros this year, while domestic rivals Manchester City and Liverpool are also breathing down United's neck.

"Recruitment recommendations and decisions are worked on by this department and the manager and his team, not senior management".

The next highest earner at Manchester United is French midfielder Paul Pogba, who returned to the club in 2016 after spending a few years at Juventus in Italy.

Another Frenchman is third in the list of highest earners at Manchester United with Anthony Martial earning £250,000 per week.
