Manchester United have invited Tyson Fury to give an inspirational speech at Old Trafford about how he overcame his struggles while on the brink of suicide.

Fury would be delivering the speech at the Theatre of Dreams when United face their rivals Manchester City next month.

United which launched its 'Heads up' campaign to encourage young player to open up on mental health issue will host the boxer who became the WBO heavyweight champion after defeating Deontay Wilder.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that Fury's story could serve as a source of inspiration to players on the brink of what he survived.

Meanwhile, Fury's promoter, Frank Warren, has revealed that a trilogy with Deontay Wilder could take place at Old Trafford.

The 67-year-old said: "He deserves the chance to fight as a WBC world champion in front of his home fans.

"I’d love to do it in Manchester at Old Trafford. That’s always been a dream of Tyson’s."
