The Glazer family have firmly dismissed any chance of a Manchester United takeover in response to the latest rumours suggesting the club is being targeted by overseas investors.

Rival groups from China and Dubai were reported to be preparing £1billion takeover bids for the Red Devils, but the Glazers moved quickly to stress that no bid has been made and that in any case the club is definitely not for sale.

A spokesman for the family told PA Sport: "Manchester United is not for sale. The Glazer family are not engaged in any discussion with any prospective bidder and it is not courting bidders for Manchester United."
