Glazers want to hold onto Man U

Manchester United's American owners, the Glazer family, have no interest in selling the English football club.

The Glazers have long been the target of protests from United fans for saddling the club with debt since their 2005 takeover, and in August they ceded 10 per cent of their shares in an IPO sale on the New York Stock Exchange.

However vice-chairman Ed Woodward says the six siblings in the family remained committed to the club on a long-term basis.

United are preparing to open an office on the United States' east coast in a bid to exploit the growing interest in football in the country.

Woodward also revealed that Australia and India are among the countries United are considering as destinations for next season's out-of-season tour.
