Saudi Arabia crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman denies ?3.8bn Manchester United takeover bid

Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has denied the widely speculated reports linking him with a £3.8bn takeover of Premiership club, Manchester United.

The rumours resurfaced over the weekend that the Glazers family who bought the club for £790m in May 2005 were looking to sell the club to the Crown Prince for £3.8bn.

In a statement through his media minister, Turki al-Shabanah, he said the reports linking the crown prince with a £3.8bn takeover of Manchester United is false.

“Reports claiming that HRH the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman intends on buying Manchester United are completely false,” said Turki al-Shabanah.

“Manchester United held a meeting with PIF [ Public Investment Fund] Saudi to discuss a sponsorship opportunity. No deal has materialised.”
