Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman’s media minister has denied reports linking him with a £3.8bn 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 £790m in May 2005.
“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.”
Prince bin Salman, 33, was appointed Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia in June 2017.
