Manchester United could be taken OFF the sales market in a massive U-turn, The Sun reports.
And instead, the Glazer family is considering a scheme to make money from the club’s global fanbase and not the football pitch.
Despite agreeing to meetings with Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Qatari Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani over a potential sale, it appears that all possible moves are on the table including scrapping the entire process.
According to the source, so far there is little sign that any bidders are coming close to the Glazers’ £6bn valuation of the club.
Suggestions of a rift between the Glazer brothers or a possible buy-out by co-chairmen Joel and Avram are being strongly denied.
One senior source said “The family will act as one. It will either be a full sale or an alternative.”
The US-based Raine Group, appointed by the Glazers to handle the sale process set in train in November, is understood to still be looking at a range of options and no final decision has been made.
