The exact sum, £7,081,018, placed them 16th on the list of the Premier League’s 20 clubs, with only Burnley, Crystal Palace, Southampton and West Bromwich Albion handing over less to intermediaries.

This weekend’s opponents Leeds parted company with £7,034,943 according to figures released yesterday.

United, who travel to Elland Road without a permanent manager after parting company with Chris Wilder three weeks ago, broke their transfer record to sign Rhian Brewster from Liverpool at the beginning of a campaign which appears destined to end in relegation regardless of the result in West Yorkshire.
