Khan spoke at length with Arsenal majority shareholder Stan Kroenke and Manchester United’s owners the Glazer family before completing his takeover.
"They were very bullish about it and wish they had got in even earlier. They are so enthusiastic about it and think Fulham are a great club. They were very encouraging," Khan told the London Evening Standard.
