Glazers want £10 billion for Manchester United

The Glazers have reportedly decided Manchester United are no longer up for sale.

The Daily Mail claim the club’s owners want a staggering £10 billion to part with the Red Devils. 

After failing to get close to their asking price they are taking the club off the market and are now eying a sale in 2025.

The expanded Club World Cup in 2025, a future Premier League TV rights deal and the 2026 World Cup in the United States, Canada and Mexico are all listed as factors influencing the Glazers’ reported decision to wait for a sale.

It emerged last year the Glazers were open to a partial or full sale of United. 

Only two serious bidders came forward, with Sheikh Jassim of Qatar keen on a complete takeover while Sir Jim Ratcliffe was interested in purchasing the controlling stake. 

But after multiple rounds of offers, the two parties were left frustrated by the Glazers, who now plan to take the club off the market.

Man United fans will be furious 

The Glazers are highly unpopular among United fans who blame their owners for their recent lack of success. 

Their reign has been marred by rising debts and vigorous fan protests. 

The Red Devils haven’t lifted the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013. 

When the Glazers announced they were open to a sale, supporters were delighted with the news.

However, they have moved the goalposts, with a £10bn valuation is completely unrealistic.

Man Utd fans held a sit-in protest at Old Trafford last week, urging them to sell up. 

These protests will likely increase, but it remains to be seen what effect they will have on the Glazers.
