Man United legends close to Salford purchase

Manchester United greats Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and the Neville brothers have clubbed together to buy Salford City, subject to FA and league approval.

The deal for the club, who play in the Evo-Stik League Division One North, is due to be completed later in the summer.

I had my first trial for Manchester United in Salford at age 11 and I will never forget how important that was to me.

Salford City FC to me represents those early years, the commitment, hunger, enthusiasm, desire and spirit of football and I am very excited about this venture.

– Former Man United defender Gary Neville
