The Glazers have announced the potential sale of Manchester United. Sir Jim Ratcliffe has declared an interest in buying Manchester United and will bid for the club.
Is it a scam? Is it another media hype to attract attention to Manchester United? Whatever it is, it is working, as the Red Devils are in the news. Perhaps it is true that the Glazers want to sell the club, and for those who have been at their throats since they took over – it is good news. Many of them would consider it good riddance to bad rubbish.
There has been a beehive of traffic at Old Trafford following the tell-all interview by Cristiano Ronaldo. Several journalists, fans and supporters of the club have criticised the Portuguese legend for revealing the rot in the club. They claim Ronaldo breached his contract, with the right thing being to leave the club.
Following the mutual agreement between Ronaldo and Manchester United to part ways, The Glazers have indicated an interest in what seems to be a desire to sell the club. According to recent reports, they announced that they’re exploring strategic alternatives for the club.
The Glazers seem to have had enough of Manchester United and are interested in selling the club. For those who have been Glazers-out, it is long overdue. Under the Glazers, Manchester United went from the top dog in the Premier League and Europe to a relic of the past. They have become a dinosaur.
A flurry of activities at Old Trafford was capped off by the Glazer family announcing they are looking at exploring strategic alternatives for the club. These alternatives include hiring the Raine Group, which conducted the sale of Chelsea for £2.5billion. According to reports, the Glazers are open to a full or partial sale of the club.
The American owners have shown a crass misunderstanding of how football works in Europe and turned Man United into a cash cow. They are now looking to cash out after 17 years of their ignominious reign. Reports claim the Glazers are looking for as much as £5bn for the club. Sir Ratcliffe has registered an interest after sale rumours surfaced during the summer.
The announcement of a possible sale of Manchester United has knocked the thunder out of the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo from the sinking club. Manchester United is at its lowest depths, and Ronaldo may have been right about the shenanigans behind the scenes. The Glazers made him a scapegoat for their failure and are about to bail out with a massive case of cash.
Manchester-born billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe has declared an interest in buying the Premier League side after going up for sale.
Ratcliffe, the owner of petrochemicals giant Ineos and Ligue 1 football club OGC Nice, tried to buy Chelsea when it was on the market. The official announcement of the sale of Manchester United has reignited his interest in buying the club.
The billionaire is worth an estimated net worth of £23.4bn. Ratcliffe is one of the wealthiest men in the UK, although he currently lives in the tax-free principality of Monaco.
