A group of wealthy supporters is looking into a possible bid for the English Premier League football champions Manchester United, but the club's U.S. owners say it is not for sale.

The 'Red Knights', a collection of individuals including former Football League chairman Keith Harris, are looking at the feasibility of putting together a bid for the world's third richest soccer club.

But the group says discussions are at an early stage and they haven't made contact with club owners, the Glazer family.

A spokesman for the Glazer family says Manchester United is not for sale.
