"There is not a grain of truth to this story - the family is committed to the long-term ownership of the club."
The Daily Mirror reported that the American billionaire was ready to sell United after profits fell short of his expectations.
Mr Glazer spent £790m buying the club in 2005, and has put his son Joel in charge of the investment.
Malcolm Glazer is currently recovering from his second stroke, but his spokesman says that his health has no bearing on the ownership of Manchester United.
The debt taken on to finance the purchase of Manchester United has already been refinanced once to reduce the interest payments and it is rumoured that the club is planning a second refinancing.
Manchester United reported profits for the 12 months to the end of June 2006 of £49.7m.
The interest payments on the debt taken out to buy the club are currently £62m a year.
