A name company has reportedly denied a takeover of English club Manchester United, put up for sale by the Glazer family.
Manchester United is officially on sale. At the head of the club since 2005, the Glazer family wants to hand over, as confirmed in person by Avram Glazer. “As we announced yesterday, the board went through a process and decided they were going to look at different strategic alternatives – and that’s what we are doing. We’ll see where it takes us.” Since this resounding announcement, rumors have been rife about the identity of potential buyers. Passed by the Red Devils during his playing career, the former England midfielder and current co-owner of Inter Miami, David Beckham, is considering a takeover.
On the other side of the Channel, the Daily Star revealed that the Apple company would be interested, to the point that the American company could put on the table the sum of 5.8 billion pounds for the acquisition of Manchester United, or 6.75 billion euros. But the box specializing in the marketing of electronic products and computers would ultimately not intend to take control of the English club. Said CBS Sports, Apple would have no ambition to settle at the head of Manchester United. Notice to amateurs therefore…
Apple have no interest in buying Manchester United. Reports they will bid are NOT true.

The team based at Old Trafford continues to be talked about behind the scenes. Prior to the announcement of his sale, Manchester United communicated the departure of Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo, by mutual agreement and with immediate effect, a consummated divorce from the 37-year-old player following his resounding interview in which the English club and its Dutch coach Erik ten Hag will have taken it for their ranks. On the pitch, the Mancunians occupy fifth place in the Premier League with 26 points, eleven behind leaders Arsenal, and will play in the Europa League play-offs against FC Barcelona on February 16 and 23.
