United have refinanced £177.78million of outstanding sterling bonds, on which they are currently paying a rate of 8.75%.

In addition they have refinanced approximately £17million of dollar bonds on which they are currently paying 8.375%.

Through the new loan with Bank of America, the club is estimated to save approximately £10million per year.

United's current debt is £370million following the 2005 takeover by the Glazer family.

But due to a staggering rise in the club's commercial income, United are expected to hand new manager David Moyes the funds needed to keep the Red Devils competitive against their rivals.
