Shares in Manchester United plc were trading at just 11.07USD at the close of trading on June 13, representing a drop of 47 per cent since last October.

The alarming figures are thought to be related to the wider economic concerns in the market and partly explained by the expected outlay required to overhaul United's squad in time for Erik ten Hag's first season as manager.

Nevertheless, the fact United's shares were near double the price following the return of Cristiano Ronaldo last September, when they peaked at 20.74USD, will concern supporters - particularly after it was recently announced that the club's debt had risen 11.8 per cent over the course of the last 12 months, now totalling £495.7million.
