With the Premier League postponed because of the virus, Liverpool's US-based Fenway Sports Group owners came under fire for exploiting the furlough scheme to save money at the same time as they continue to pay huge salaries to star players like Mohamed Salah.

"We have consulted with a range of key stakeholders as part of a process aimed at achieving the best possible outcome for all concerned," Moore said.

United, who have around 900 full-time employees, say they will continue to pay all staff as if they were working normally.

"These scenarios range from best case to worst and everything in between. We are engaged in the process of exploring all avenues within our scope to limit the inevitable damage."
