Manchester United look set for another record-breaking year off the pitch after posting a healthy 16.5% increase in first-quarter turnover to £73.8million.

United reported growth in all areas, with the commercial side benefiting from the amazing £40million deal with DHL to sponsor their training kit, helping it rise 22.3% to £29.6million.

Media revenues were up from £19.4million to £22.6million, largely thanks to United's status as Premier League champions ensuring they get a larger share of the Champions League pot, and a lucrative five-match tour of the United States.
