The Manchester United "Class of '92" are set to front a multi-billion pound takeover of the club, according to The Sun

Former United players David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Gary and Phil Neville, along with current star Ryan Giggs looks set to lead a mega deal bankrolled by Arab oil money. 

If reports are to believed, the Glazers - who purchased the Red Devils in 2005 - are ready to sell the Old Trafford outfit. 

A source told The Sun: “The Glazers have lost interest. Everyone knows the club is effectively for sale.

“It’s just a question of getting the right price where they recoup their money and make a bit to save face.”

United legend Beckham looks set to play a huge role in the deal, having spent time at Qatari-owned Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain before retiring from the game at the end of the 2012/13 season. 

And with the proposed £2bn takeover of Manchester United looking set to be funded by the Qatari royal family, it remains to be seen as to whether Beckham and Co. step up their interest in the club. 

Despite Manchester United's on pitch troubles this season, the club rose two percent to $16.14 on the New York Stock Exchange yesterday, meaning United are now valued at $2.6billion.
