The Glazer family remain committed to owning Manchester United despite Avram Glazer's decision to sell five million of his shares, sources have told ESPN.

Avram, co-chairman at Old Trafford alongside brother Joel, could earn around $100 million from the sell-off, which would see the Glazer's ownership of the club drop from 78% to 74.9%.

A statement issued on Thursday confirmed United will not receive any money from the sale.
