Man Utd expect third takeover bid from Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince

Manchester United are expecting a new bid for the club.

The Mirror says United are bracing themselves for a third takeover bid from Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman after a £3billion offer was rejected.

According to a source close to the club, the Red Devils have already rebuffed two offers from the Arab nations Royal family , the second of which was a whopping £3bn.

Current United owners, the Glazer family, have on both occasions said they were not willing to sell at any price. The Glazers have owned the club since 2005.

While their position still stands, the recent choice of co-owner Kevin Glazer to put his 13 per cent stake in the Premier League club, worth £270million, on the New York Stock Exchange suggests it could changing.

With one of the six Glazer siblings publicly testing the market in such fashion, certainly brings the Saudis back into the picture.
