Manchester United's half-year profits have dropped by more than 50%, hit by falling TV income and the cost of buying new players.

It reported pre-tax profits of 12.4m for the six months to 31 January, down from 26.8m a year earlier.

The club said potential buyer Malcolm Glazer was still examining its books.

Chief executive David Gill reiterated the board's view that 300p a share was fair but other parts of the offer made it not in the club's "best interests".
