With the news coming out that Manchester United are putting their season tickets up for general sale may just encourage “The Red Knights”. The Red Knights were thought to of backed out after the Glazers saying the club was not for sale and its still their business. As we all know last season Manchester United fans had enough because the £80 million which we got for Ronaldo wasn’t use to get in a replacement.
But the Red Knights believe yet again that a deal could still be done, even though they said that they were withdrawing from the process in June
“Our interest may have been dormant but it is not dead,’ said Keith Harris, the former chairman of the Football League and now chairman of investment bankers Seymour Pierce. A United fan, he was the prime mover in forming the Red Knights.
Manchester United have refused to confirm or deny that the sales may now be down by around 5,000-10,000. Some on consortium members of the Red Knights have said that they want to see the Glazers quit the club.
Harris told the Mail On Sunday: “There is no change in our motivation of changing the regime. The news about season tickets is significant. If the sale level is below their budget and expectations, that will clearly have an impact on the Glazers’ business plan. Their margin for error is not huge.”
