Apple interested in buying Manchester United for almost $7 Billion

Technology giants Apple are interested in buying Manchester United in a stunning £5.8billion.

United owners the Glazers have decided to sell the club after caving in to the demands of those fans who have wanted them ousted.

The American billionaires will sell the club to the highest bidder – and bosses of Apple have expressed an interest in discussing a potential deal.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who recently sat down for an explosive interview with journalist Piers Morgan, didn’t hold back when he declared war on the Glazer family, Manchester United’s owners, who are considering selling the club to the highest bidder in a move many have dubbed as “damage control.”

Apple are the largest tech company in the world with an annual revenue of almost £326billion – and estimated net worth as of this month of £2trillion.

The California-based firm have no experience of owning a football club the size of United.

While the sale of the English club has been heavily debated in recent days, Apple has entered the fray with a 5.8 billion pound ($7 billion) proposal.

This incredible figure surpasses TL 130 billion, and if Apple wins, it will refurbish Old Trafford, Manchester United’s home stadium known as the “Theatre of Dreams.”

The Daily Star stated immediately after the news that Apple, the world’s largest tech corporation, may be interested in acquiring the club for an astronomical 5.8 billion pounds.

The California-based technology company has never previously shown an interest in investing in a sports club, but it is claimed that the commercial prospects afforded by United were the driving force in Apple’s choice.

In early 2022, a group led by Todd Boehly paid 4.25 billion pounds to buy Chelsea from Roman Abramovich, and if Apple buys Manchester United, it will be the most expensive acquisition of a football club in history.

Glazer adoration

Joel and Avram Glazer purchased the team in 2005, but they have endured criticism from supporters ever since.

The anger to the American investment bankers’ acquisition of United was so strong that some fans founded the FC United of Manchester breakaway club to protest.

Discontent with United’s direction also sparked a movement of fans donning scarves portraying the club’s historic colours (green and gold), leading in a series of protests both inside and outside Old Trafford.

“The company’s board of directors has reached a decision to sell Manchester United, one of the most successful and historical sports teams in the world,” stated the Glazer family and their company’s board of directors in a statement published last Tuesday. The process of investigating strategic options for the club will commence.”
