London: The American Glazer family are long-term investors in English soccer club Manchester United and have no plans to sell the club following a flotation in August, Vice Chairman Ed Woodward told reporters on Tuesday.

"It's a very popular business that people have interest in. The answer is not for sale," Woodward said when asked about future ownership plans.

"The opportunities that we see going forward and the excitement that they have in this is undiminished. I don't see them selling completely for many, many years," he added.

Woodward revealed that India and Australia are both on a shortlist of countries for United to tour in the summer. The club are also to open an office on the east coast of the USA to try to cash in on growing interest in football in North America.
