Saudi Arabia prince denies Manchester United takeover bid

Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman's media minister Turki al-Shabanah has denied reports linking him with a £3.8 billion takeover of Manchester United.

Rumours of his interest resurfaced over the weekend, although reports suggest the Glazers are not looking to sell.

United's American owners bought the club for £790 million in May 2005.

"Reports claiming that HRH the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman intends on buying Manchester United are completely false," BBC cited Turki al-Shabanah as saying.

"Manchester United held a meeting with PIF [​Public Investment Fund] Saudi to discuss a sponsorship opportunity. No deal has materialised," he added.
