Glazers leaving Manchester United?

Ассоrding tо Sky Sроrts News reроrter Kаveh Sоlhekоl, the Glаzers аre nоt сurrently interested in selling the сlub desрite the reсent rumоurs but аre орen tо ‘bringing in mоre investment’. Solhekol said:

“The Glazer family don’t want to sell Manchester United, according to Bloomberg. But to just bring in more investment to the club.”

“The New York Stock Exchange has reacted to that news with United shares going up by 4% this morning. According to Bloomberg, any potential deal could see Manchester United valued at up to £5 billion. United are not commenting on these reports at all.”

“If we’re talking about bringing in investment to a club like Manchester United, there are a lot of people out there who want to invest in Premier League clubs at the moment. We saw when Chelsea were put up for sale the New York Investment Bank, who were marketing the sale, more than 100 parties contacted them.”

“There is a lot of interest, especially in the US, in investing in Premier League clubs. Why do they want to do that? They think they can get a good deal at the moment and that the value of Premier League clubs is going to boom in the next few years because they believe there will be a lot more interest in streaming and they can make money from the fans these Premier League clubs have all around the world. As far as it concerns the Glazers, they effectively sold a minority stake in United before. This is because they floated the club on the New York Stock Exchange, selling 10% of their shares. They sold that stake to shareholders – this time it’s about bringing in an investor.”
