MANCHESTER United owners, the Glazers, have stressed the club is not for sale despite rumours of a takeover bid from the Red Knights Group.

Notorious football deal maker and lifelong United fan, Keith Harris, is at the centre of the group but the Glazers insisted last night they would not entertain selling the club.

A Glazer family spokesman said: “Manchester United is not for sale.”
