WATCHING BRIEF The Glazers UNHAPPY Sir Alex Ferguson
MALCOLM GLAZER has no intention of selling Manchester United.
But that silence has been imposed by Stock Exchange rules, which have bound the Glazers not to comment before 3pm tomorrow.
He says angry fans have had enough of the Glazers milking United like a cash cow to fund their American business interests.
In an uncut 35-minute interview, Glazer continually returned to the fears held by the majority of fans over United's future.
The source said: "The Glazers are determined to ensure continuity and success prevails at Manchester United and Sir Alex is a key player in those plans.
The Glazers could however consider introducing a debenture scheme.
THE GLAZER family are ready to listen to offers for Manchester United - potentially throwing the club into more off-field turmoil.
The drastic measures come as American tycoon Glazer is on the brink of completing a pounds 790million take-over of the club.
This agreement is viewed by both companies as mutually beneficial, and will complete the transition of the Diageo spirits and wine brands to Glazers in Texas.
I don't think Glazer knows the game, I don't think he is passionate about the game.
These great brands create significant added value for our entire line of spirits and wine," said Bennett Glazer, President of Glazer.
