BRITAIN'S richest man Sir Jim Radcliffe has reportedly received no indication from the Glazer family that they intend to give up control of Manchester United.
The 69-year-old announced earlier this month of his intentions to buy the Red Devils from the Americans.
A spokesperson for Radcliffe, who is believed to be worth around £11bn, said: "If the club is for sale, Jim is definitely a potential buyer.
“If something like this was possible, we would be interested in talking with a view to long-term ownership.
“This is not about the money that has been spent or not spend.
"Jim is looking at what can be done now and, knowing how important the club is to the city, it feels like the time is right for a reset."

"They haven’t got the manager selection right, haven’t bought well.
