The Premier League have finally agreed a bailout deal with EFL clubs during the coronavirus pandemic worth a total of £250million, it was announced on Thursday. In a statement, the top-flight confirmed that a grant-based fund of £50m has been agreed for clubs in Leagues One and Two, while a £200m interest-free loan facility will be available to be used by those in the Championship. “Our over-arching aim throughout this process has been to ensure that all EFL clubs survive the financial impact of the pandemic,” said EFL chairman Rick Parry.
United require a point from their final group game away at RB Leipzig next Tuesday to qualify for the last 16.
The news follows months of negotiations between the two governing bodies.
