Manchester United fans have been left reeling after news of a major takeover update emerged, with Joel and Avram Glazer reportedly hatching a plan with a US hedge fund.
The Glazer family, who own the Premier League club, are said to be in talks with the American investment firm, Silver Lake, about a potential deal.
The news has been met with a mixed reaction from United supporters, with many feeling that the Glazers are looking to cash in on the club’s success.
The Glazers have been in control of United since 2005, when they completed a controversial takeover of the club.
Since then, the family have been heavily criticised by fans for their lack of investment in the team and for their perceived lack of ambition.
The latest news has only added to the frustration of United supporters, who are desperate for the Glazers to sell up and allow new owners to take the club forward.
The potential deal with Silver Lake is said to be worth around £3.3 billion, and would see the Glazers retain a significant stake in the club.
However, the news has been met with scepticism by United fans, who fear that the Glazers are simply looking to cash in on the club’s success.
The Glazers have been heavily criticised for their lack of investment in the team, and many fans feel that the family are not the right people to take the club forward.
The news of the potential takeover has also been met with anger by some United supporters, who have called for a boycott of the club’s matches and merchandise.
The Glazers have yet to comment on the reports, but it is clear that the news has not gone down well with United fans.
It remains to be seen whether the Glazers will be able to push through the deal with Silver Lake, but it is clear that the news has not been welcomed by United supporters.
