Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly emerged as a target for Saudi Arabian billionaire Mohammad Bin Salman who wants to buy the club.
According to the report by UK Sun, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad Salman is worth around £850bn (about RR15 874 167 809,75).
The report added that he is ready to sanction a bid by an individual or a move backed by the money of the oil-rich state to take a stake in United or ideally to buy the club outright.
It was not stated if the Glazers' family want to sell Manchester United, but even if they are willing to do business, taking over the Old Trafford club is expected to cost prince Mohammad more than £3 billion.
Glazers' family have been the owner of Manchester United since 2005, and the report stressed that co-chairman Avram Glazer has been spending significant amounts of time in Saudi Arabia recently.
Avram is due to attend the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh later this month and he is likely to meet prince Mohammad Bin Salman.
The Glazers have taken more than £1bn out of the club during their reign while boosting income to a record £590m last season in the Premier League.
Manchester United are currently occupying 8th position on the Premier League standings with 13 points after eight games played this term.
It was earlier reporte that Premier League giants Manchester United are allegedly ready to make an offer for Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo as the Red Devils want him back in England.
Manchester United are said to have told Cristiano Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes of their plans to make heavy investment in signing his client.
