British football club, Manchester United are in talks to buy Indian Super League side East Bengal, according to former cricket and president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Sourav Ganguly, who is overseeing the negotiations.

The Glazer family is overlooking the deals as East Bengal club currently stands without investment after their association with Shree Cement Limited ended last month. Bangladesh-based Bashundhara Group has also reportedly been overseeing the deal.

Ganguly confirmed at a press conference in Kolkata on Tuesday, about the possible investment by Manchester United’s owners. He said, “Yes, we have spoken to them and others also. It will take 10 to 12 more days to know who the entity will be.”
