The Glazers, owner of Manchester United are demanding a staggering £4billion to sell the English club.
Recall the Glazers acquired Manchester United in 2005.
The asking price the American owners have slammed on the Premier League club they bought for £790million in 2005.
This is according to a report credited to the UK Mirror. It is the figure the Glazers believe would have been realised, if the doomed European Super League project had gone ahead.
Throughout their 16-year spell in control of the Premier League giants, the Glazers have always insisted that they are in it for the long haul at Old Trafford, stating that they have had no plans to sell the club.
Following the recent protests from fans for a change, the owners have now put out the asking price. However, whether a buyer would approach this staggering price is a matter of time.
Throughout their unpopular 16-year ownership, the Florida-based family has always insisted they are in United for the long haul and have shown no desire to sell the club.
The Glazers continue to rake in annual dividends amounting to millions while the debt stayed high amid Covid19.
However, city investors believe a bid close to their £4billion asking price would tempt brothers Joel and Avram, who effectively run the club, to relinquish control.
