DOHA (Reuters) – Qatar Holding has denied reports it is planning to buy Manchester United, a statement from Qatar’s state-run news agency said.

Qatar Holding Chief Executive Officer Ahmed Mohamed Al Sayed told Qatar News Agency that the fund was not, and never had been, in negotiations to buy the club.

Qatar recently acquired a 70 percent stake in French top-flight team Paris St Germain.

The Gulf state will host the 2022 World Cup.
