Premier League leaders Manchester United said they were not for sale after the Sunday Times reported that Qatar Holding had held talks about a £1.5 billion takeover.

.."There has been no approach of any kind to buy the club and one wouldn't be welcome anyway because it is not for sale," a spokesman said, adding that the newspaper story was wrong.

The Sunday Times reported that the Glazer family, the unpopular American owners of the Premier League club, had held talks with a group, believed to be Qatar Holding - the investment group controlled by the Qatari royal family.

The report said the talks had floundered because the Glazers valued the Old Trafford club at closer to £2bn.

The Glazers bought Manchester United, one of the most famous clubs in the world, in 2005 for some £790 million against a wave of protest from fans who anticipated they would load it up with debt.

No one from Qatar Holding was immediately available to comment.

Wonder what the green and yellows would prefer. At least they'd be able to compete with Citeh!
