Saudi sports minister speaks out amid Manchester United takeover speculation

With the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed Bin Salman linked to a take over of Manchester United, Saudi Arabia's sports minister Turki Al Faisal has noted that 'anything is possible' when asked about the reports.

United have however denied rumors of a possible take over with Ed Woodward revealing the Glazers have no interest in selling at the minute.

Managing director Richard Arnold fuelled speculation when photographs and videos of him meeting Saudi delegates appeared on Twitter but the visit is believed not to be connected to a possible sale of the club.

In an interview with BBC, Saudi's sports minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Faisal responded to the speculation.

"Now we are focused on developing the local scene and we have invested a lot of money in football clubs within the kingdom."

In 2017, United signed a memorandum of understanding with Saudi Arabia’s General Sports Authority to develop the football industry in the Gulf state.
