Saudi Arabia Prince Mohammad Bin Salman breaks silence over Manchester United takeover.
Manchester United have been linked with a new ownership change. Fans went crazy when the Red Devils officials meet Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman before a month.
Various English resources read that the Asians were keen to bid 3.8 billion to take over the club from Glazers. However, those statements have been put to bed after a spokesman decided to tweet about the same.

Manchester United have struggled ever since their noisy neighbours Manchester City were backed by Dubai’s Sheik Mansour. There is no doubt that one part is also down to bad recruitment.
Any fan would want a new owner with more money to spend on the club, but they would also want their club to hold their heritage to be run in a specific way. It is no brainer that Manchester United are one among those clubs to carry out their philosophy along.
Since taking over the club in 2003, Glazers have splashed out 790 million pounds to increase the stake at the club. Should they decide to sell the English outfit, they are in line for a huge profit.

There is no doubt that Manchester United will be looking to lift the Premier League title sooner than later. The English outfit have splashed the second most amount in the last five years, but they have failed to establish as a top three club during this short span of time.
Whether the board will be looking to hire a new manager or stick with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains to be seen. However, they are looking for a new manager who will take them to the top of the Premier League again.
