It is reported that a meeting with United plc chairman Roy Gardner and Magnier was cancelled because the club's largest shareholder was so angry and frustrated over the Reds' reaction to demands for an investigation into United's transfer business.

But with the feud escalating United are said to be considering seeking an arbitrator to talk to Magnier in a bid to settle the dispute.The high-profile mediator would attempt to broker a peace deal that would end the battle that is causing huge embarrassment and distress at Old Trafford.
