Apple, one of the world’s largest technology companies, is reportedly interested in purchasing Manchester United in a jaw-dropping bid worth $5.8 bιllιon.
It has been established that the Glazers have made the decision to put the Red Devils up for sale, which comes almost 17 years after the American family ρuгchased the club. It was геᴠеаled by the Red Devils in a statement that the Glazers were investigating “strategic alternatives,” and it is widely believed that they will sell the franchise to the highest bidder.
The Daily Star reports that executives at Apple have indicated that they are interested in discussing the possibility of a deal to ρuгchase United. After a decade of troubles since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure, a lot of Red Devils fans have wanted the Glazers to sell up, and it looks like they might get their wish. Apple is one of the companies that is interested in taking control of the club.
Apple is by far the most successful and largest technology firm in the world; the corporation’s yearly turnover is close to £400 bιllιon, and its products are distributed in every region of the globe. Apple Computer Company was established in 1976 in California, but it wasn’t until the 21st century that it became the first publicly traded company in the United States to be valued at more than £830 bιllιon, which is equivalent to one trillion dollars in US currency. The company was originally known as Apple Computer.
However, Apple has never owned a football club of United’s stature before, and CEO Tim Cook is eager to investigate the possibilities that come with ownership of United, despite the fact that Apple has never done so before. He will organize conversations with the banks that have been tasked with supervising the transaction, one of which being The Raine Group.
Cook has aspirations of constructing a brand-new stadium that is on par with the most cutting-edge facilities seen elsewhere in the world. Even though some United fans wouldn’t be interested in that notion because of the history and tradition surrounding Old Trafford, other fans would be excited by the prospect of the club undergoing significant change.
The Glazer family had originally put their asking price at approximately £8.28 bιllιon, but they have since been informed that this is an unrealistic expectation given the present market conditions. Real Madrid is the most valuable football club in the world, according to Forbes, with a value of £4.22 bιllιon as of June 2022. Barcelona is not far behind, with a valuation of £4.20 bιllιon.
United was ranked third on that list; however, given that the team is currently competing in the Europa League, it is reasonable to assume that their value has decreased significantly.
Liverpool and Bayern Munich make it into the top five, while Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are making a push for a spot. Both Erling Haaland and Lionel Messi are contributing to their teams’ efforts to become more well-known throughout the world.
The Glazer family, who own Manchester United, has made it public knowledge that they are interested in selling the club.
Because it comes after the news that the Red Devils have parted company with Cristiano Ronaldo, this piece of information stands out even more than usual.
Sky News in Florida approached Avram Glazer on Wednesday night, and he was speaking in public for the very first time since the announcement. Sky News was broadcasting from Florida.
In light of this, Glazer offered the following commentary regarding the sale of Man United:
“As we reported the day before, the board of directors went through a procedure and ultimately came to the conclusion that it would examine a variety of possible strategic options.
That is exactly what we are going to do.”
Glazer was the first person to express his thoughts on the possibility of selling Manchester United.
When asked why the club wasn’t sold sooner, he repeated that the American family is currently weighing its options before making a decision. This was in response to the question of why the club wasn’t sold sooner.
“We’ve been through a procedure once more, and now we’re going to investigate all of the different strategic options that are open to us. After that, we’ll see where that leads us. I think you have a wonderful way of expressing yourself. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me tonight, and I hope that you and your loved ones have a fantastic Thanksgiving.”
According to recent reports in the media, Apple is the most recent company to be mentioned in connection with the possible ρuгchase of the Old Trafford football team.
There were rumors going around not too long ago that David Beckham was willing to negotiate with the team that he played for previously.
