Malcolm Glazer, the billionaire who led a controversial takeover of Manchester United, has died at the age of 85, the BBC Sport reports.
The Glazer family purchased United for £790m in May 2005 amid protests from the Premier League club's fans.
However, they went on to win five Premier League titles and the Champions League under his ownership.
The New York-born American's sons, Joel and Avram, took over the day-to-day running of the club after their father suffered a stroke in April 2006.
