I remember on another thread someone who is obviously more business savvy than me, (and Im doing this from memory so might not get it 100% right) said keeping the 'asset' on the books for as long as possible even if not playing, looks good on the finance sheet and keeps the share prices stable. If you offload all your deadwood it looks like asset stripping and can cause the shares to fluctuate irregularly. Keeping and extending the contract isnt for football reasons, its just financial. Thats how the glazers think and run the club. Its all to do with getting the maximum financial benefit.
