The supporters group ‘the 1958’ have organised the march following news that Sir Jim Ratcliffe is interested in buying the football club from the rotten current ownership.

It has been reported that the Glazers are willing to sell a minority stake in United, and Ratcliffe is willing to purchase this stake if there was eventually a plan for it to turn into long-term ownership of the Manchester-based club.

“If the club is for sale, Jim is definitely a potential buyer,” a spokesman for the British billionaire said.

“This is not about the money that has been spent or not spent.

“Jim is looking at what can be done now and, knowing how important the club is to the city, it feels like the time is right for a reset.”

The 69-year-old is a known supporter of the Reds, he was unsuccessful with a late bid for Chelsea back in May.

Whilst the approach will not be similar, with the 1958 stressing the importance of the protest remaining peaceful, they will hope to have a great influence with their plan.

It has been encouraged for fans to bring flags, which can be put on 30 metre fencing which will be provided.

On the opening weekend, the club shop was closed after a large group of United supporters had marched round to that area of the stadium.
