The Glazer family will not sell Manchester United, despite reports of potential takeover bids from China and United Arab Emirates.
“United is not for sale,” the family’s spokesman said Sunday.
“The Glazer family is 100 percent committed to long-term investment and ownership in the club … demonstrated by the expenditure during the transfer window.
“The position has not changed and nor will it.”
According to reports, rival consortia from China and Dubai are interested in buying United.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Malcolm Glazer bought the club for $1.47 billion in 2005.
Since winning the Premier League title last season, Glazer has financed the purchase of more than £50m worth of players, including England midfielder Owen Hargreaves, Argentina striker Carlos Tevez, Portuguese youngster Nani and Brazilian midfielder Anderson.
