Manchester United Football Club could finally be sold by its American owners after a 17-year reign dominated by fan protests and declining on-pitch performance.

Sky News can exclusively reveal that the Glazer family is preparing to formally announce its intention to examine potential sources of outside investment that could include a full-blown auction of arguably the world's most famous football club.

Sources said on Tuesday that investment bankers were being instructed by Manchester United's owners to advise on the process, which is likely to include a full or partial sale, or strategic partnership with third parties.

A statement confirming their intentions could come imminently, one of them said.

The announcement of a review of financial options that could include a sale process would signal an end to years of speculation over whether the Glazers might be persuaded to offload a club which for the past decade has experienced an almost-unmitigated footballing decline.
The (potentially) good news keeps on coming :)

I'm guessing the American owners arent seeing a way to be competitive going forward against the likes of Qatari and Saudi owners, which scares me. The only people who will be competitive vs the likes of them are similarly questionable countries

What’s it worth?


Big money wants EPL clubs. What do they know?

EPL clubs are undervalued. What they get in 3 years they ‘could’ get in 1 year!

This would require breaking FIFA.

FIFA is now under pressure due to events surrounding the WC…

Is football about to change?
