Breaking down the numbers was Cliff Baty, Manchester United Chief Financial Officer who said the Premier League broadcasters recalled the huge amount due to changes in time and dates announced.

Baty continued by saying that revenues dropped even further following suspension of contracts by sponsors.

The contracts and cash backs have further been worsened by the closure of some of their shops as a club in the country.

English Premier League clubs have already began training under laid health guidelines including training in groups for a limited period of time.

A return to action in June will bring less revenues as matches are being held in closed doors and without fans at the stadium.

Ed Woodward declined to issue the actual figures expected at the club but said it will reflect at the end of June.

Several other clubs are expected to report similar numbers soon as a return to play expected to save the clubs from collapsing.
