United refute repeated takeover talk

Manchester United Football Club has insisted there ‘has been no approach of any kind’ for the club following an article in the Sunday Times claiming talks had been held with Qatar Holding LLC over a £1.5 billion takeover.

It was alleged that the talks took place soon after Qatar was announced as the host of the 2012 World Cup, but the club’s spokesperson Philip Townsend told Bloomberg:  "There has been no approach of any kind to buy the club, and one would not be welcome anyway because it is not for sale."

La Liga side Malaga is currently owned by Qatari royal family member Sheikh Abdullah al Thani whilst the Qatar Foundation agreed a €150 million sponsor deal with Barcelona last year.
