The Sun newspaper reported Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, currently battling claims his country has murdered a prominent journalist , was due to meet club co-owner and co-chair Avram Glazer in the kingdom. It claimed the prince was interested in supporting the purchase of a major stake worth about £3bn or a full takeover. United announced last month during its full-year results it was expecting another period of record revenue in 2018/19 despite a gruelling start to the season on the pitch that has left club manager Jose Mourinho under pressure.
