Manchester United shares rocket by £80MILLION after Class of '92 linked with takeover

David Beckham could front a deal that sees him and his famed 'class of 92' team-mates (Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, the Neville brothers Gary and Phil, Nicky Butt) wrestle control of Manchester United from current owners the Glazer family. Becks set up his own Academy in East London back in 2005 and is currently busy in the US launching a Miami-based MLS franchise.

The Glazers purchased the English club in 2005 but have not been fully accepted by large numbers of United fans. The former players could head a consortium bankrolled by millionaire Fred Done, wealthy Arabs and horse racing trainer Ged Mason among others.
