A group of financiers known as the Red Knights has begun talks on a possible takeover bid for the heavily-indebted Manchester United Football club.

The group, which appears determined to oust the club's US owners - the Glazer family, confirmed they had met to discuss the issue.

Pundits say the Red Knight Group has effectively set a challenge to ManU supporters to show how much they wish to see alternative ownership.
