Saudi Arabian Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has given up on buying Manchester United . The Saudi royal family wanted to tempt the Glazers into selling the Premier League giants with the promise of restoring the club to the top of European game.
The Prince, whose family are worth in excess of £850bn, was tipped to make a stunning £3.8bn bid for the Old Trafford side.
But the Sun reports Bin Salman has ended his interest in taking over at United for the time being at least.
It is suggested United’s current owners, the Glazer family, want to take a more hands-on role at Old Trafford.
The Glazers, in particular Avram and Joel, have come under fire in recent times.
But they plan to become more involved from this summer, although executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward’s position is not under threat.
Meanwhile, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged the United fans to cut the club’s owners some slack ahead of the crunch clash with Chelsea .
