Kenyon, working with Florida-based GACP Sports, is trying to put together funding for a £300million deal for the Premier League club, which takes on Wolverhampton Wanderers at St James’s Park this afternoon.

A source told The Mirror: “They’re hoping it’ll happen. They’re doing due diligence. They want to get the takeover done before the January window, and then get some players in."

However, United owner Mike Ashley – who put the club up for sale two years ago – remains sceptical about the likelihood of Kenyon raising enough money to buy the club. Kenyon was previously chief executive of Chelsea and Manchester United.
