According to ESPN reports, Manchester United will announce the financial status of the season in mid-October, which can show how much the epidemic has had on the team's finances. The total loss of Manchester United in the past six months has exceeded 75 million pounds, and this figure is likely to be close to 100 million pounds on the annual announcement date.

Some insiders revealed to ESPN that as long as an empty game at Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester United would lose 4 to 5 million pounds. So far, Manchester United has played 7 official games in an empty home.
If the 2019-20 season is full of spectators as usual, Manchester United can benefit a lot from the quarterfinals and semi-finals of the Europa League alone.
The empty games have caused a loss of nearly 45 million pounds to Manchester United's financial revenue. Due to the British government's decision to abolish the original plan of "opening fans to watch games from October", Manchester United's losses may be further expanded.
In addition, the epidemic has affected normal match arrangements, and Manchester United also owed a refund of at least 20 million pounds to the Premier League broadcaster. Coupled with this year's special circumstances, unable to participate in commercial competitions during the summer off-season as before, Manchester United lost more than 10 million pounds in this regard. Due to the open time for fans to enter the stadium, Manchester United cannot sell packages to fans as usual. If the 2020-21 season has been empty games, then Manchester United will still have a loss of 37.5 million pounds.
Insiders also told ESPN that the epidemic is the main reason for Manchester United's cautious attitude in Xia Chuang.
