A delegation of Manchester United top brass are set to visit Saudi Arabia as rumours of a take over by the Gulf state's Crown Prince refuse to disappear. 

Discontent surrounding United's ownership by the American Glazer family has been apparent since their takeover in 2005, paving the way for reports of a possible takeover by 34-year-old Mohammed Bin Salman. 

Although they have attended in the past, an appearance by United officials at the Future Investment Initiative organised by the Saudi Royal Family's sovereign wealth fund later this month will do little to quash rumours of a purchase.
