GFH only bought United on 21 December but in the company's statements for the year ending 31 December 2012, they have revealed an 'active plan' to sell their stake in LUFC Holdings Limited.

Bahrain-based GFH also described the acquisition of Leeds as a 'bargain purchase'.

"The Group has an active plan to sell its stake in LUFC Holdings Limited, and accordingly, the asset and liabilities acquired were classified as held-for-sale and presented in the consolidated statement of financial position," GFH stated in the company's accounts for 2012.

"Subsequent to the year end, the Group has commenced negotiations relating to the sale of its stake in LUFC Holdings Limited."

Businessman Steve Parkin has been linked with a fresh attempt to buy the club by local media after he failed in his previous attempt.

To add to the sense of uncertainty around Elland Road, Leeds manager Neil Warnock has indicated he will leave at the end of the season if they do not make the play-offs.

United are seven points adrift of the play-off places with eight games to go in the regular season.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
