United's six month financial results were released on Tuesday and one of the things that jumped
out at me was the huge rise in wages paid to players.
With the retirement and sale of older players likeÂ Garry Neville, VDS, O'Shea, Brown, Obertan
and Scholes (his return is not included in these figures) and younger (and you would imagine
cheaper) players coming in, I expected United's wage bill to stay even if not drop.
