Man United Not For Sale

Manchester United owners the Glazer family have reiterated their stance on the club not being for sale.

The Qatar Royal Family have been linked with a £1.6billion bid to buy Man United but the Glazers have insisted that they won't sell.

A statement read: "The board notes recent press speculation regarding a possible bid for Manchester United"

"The owners remain fully committed to their long-term ownership of the club."

"No discussions have taken place, Manchester United is not for sale and the owners will not entertain any offers."

The statement was released alongside United's second quarter financial results, which showed that in 12 months the clubs debt has shrunk from £512.5m to £489.4m from the end of 2010. Man United are also on target to become the first club to reach the £100m mark for commercial revenue.

One Response so far.

    In all honesty why wouldn't they sell at that price? In the current climate etc i don't see them obtaining a better offer many years from now especially with 40 million + being wasted on interest payments alone. Money for players? what money i haven't seen any. Yes you could argue that money was given for Smalling, Hernandez and Bebe but they are technically for the future.

    On the flip side we have remained at a superior level and are still playing with the elite of the league and Europe on a yearly basis. Are we this year beginning to see the effects of not spending somewhat big taking its toll. Midfield is in shambles right now, not helped by Giggs, Park, Hargreaves, Anderson and Valencia all out. Scholes can't play every game 90 minutes per game anymore, Carrick's form has been shocking of late and Gibson is no better if worse right now. Fletcher although his form has dipped i think is being affected by not having that Scholes type player next to him week in and week out. This is not vintage United but we are top of the table by a point and having a game in hand, we are also still in the FA Cup and in the Champions League. All bad no not at all but not what he have grown to expect and have seen in recent years. Yes i believe it is in direct relation to the Glazers taking over. No money for players of course you have to do the best you can with what options are at your disposable. Should they sell now absolutely in my opinion, Quatar holdings never heard of them but they want to go up against Man City, would that really be a bad thing? I don't think so but the way things are headed there could be some troubling times ahead and we will then begin to see ever growing unrest from the supporters and against our players, we haven't always been winning week in and week out there have been plenty bad years but the love for the club remains through thick and thin for me. Fergie cant and wont last forever which is undoubtedly going to bring a dramatic change on things.

    Interesting topic to me and everyone will have their own take on the issue along with their points of view.
