The Glazers are ready to hand off Manchester United sooner than later after announcing the decision to sell the club, MySportDab reports.
After intense pressure and massive recurrent protest by the fans, the American investors finally announced their decision to explore ‘alternative strategies’ to fund the club, including an option to sell.
The decision follows the bombshell interview granted by former legendary forward Cristiano Ronaldo with Piers Morgan, slamming the club’s mismanagement by the Glazers.
Ronaldo’s contract was terminated after the interview, but the Glazers finally bent by announcing to hand over the club after 17 years of ownership.
They bought the club under controversial circumstances in 2005 for £790milion, and have been at the helm of affairs overseeing the good times and the bad times at Old Trafford.
Manchester United have fallen off the pecking order among other Premier League rivals, and this has been the major trigger of widespread protest by the fans.
While the Glazers finally gave in to pressure and confirmed the decision to sell the club, there was no fixed timeline for the takeover process.
However, according to the BBC, the Glazers may likely hand off the Old Trafford club at the end of the current 2022/23 football season.
Meanwhile, potential buyers have expressed interest in taking over the Old Trafford club, with US tech giants Apple leading the race after the Glazers announce the decision to sell.
The Glazers want £5billion potential buyers to sell Manchester United. This is £7.2million more than the cost which Todd Boehly bought Chelsea from Roman Abramovich
