The Glazer family have dismissed alllegations that debts at Manchester United are running out of control.
A report from the Manchester United Supporters Trust claims interest payments have soared to £100m a year on the loan the Glazers took out to buy the club.
The Trust report states that the Glazer family “continue to face an extraordinary and growing debt problem”.
“The story is inaccurate,” said a spokesman for the Glazer family. “Nothing has changed.
“The debts continue to be comfortably serviced by the business, which is performing better than ever.
“As always there have been substantial funds for the manager to purchase players over the summer.”
United spent lavishly over the summer bringing in Anderson, Nani, Owen Hargreaves and Carlos Tevez for a combined cost believed to have exceeded £50m.
The Glazers completed a £790m takeover of United in 2005 and they recently reaffirmed their commitment to the club reported interest from buyers in China and Dubai.
