Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward believes the club’s American owners, the Glazer family, will remain in control of the club for the ‘long term.’

The Glazers completed their controversial takeover at Old Trafford in 2005, with their ownership the subject of intense focus ever since.

Fans have planned a protest against the Glazers ahead of Sunday’s Premier League meeting against Liverpool with United languishing down in 12th in the table.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has been linked with making a takeover bid for the club. However, Woodward rebuffed talk of a takeover bid.

‘Based on what I see, they’re in it for the long term,’ Woodward told the United We Stand fanzine of the Glazers.

‘With regards to offers or asking prices, my understanding is that there have been no discussions for a price for the club or anything like that.

‘Every conversation we have is based on the long-term.’
