Glazers set asking price for Man Utd; two meetings held with Saudi consortium

It doesn’t sound like Manchester United will be up for sale anytime soon.

The Glazers will only sell the club if they receive £1b, and only want to part ways with a 20% stake.

That’s according to the Daily Mail who cite corporate financiers who have dealt with the club.

Fans have never wanted the Glazers as owners and never will. A series of disappointing league finishes can show the damage they’ve done and we believe things will get worse before they get better.

Man Utd have finished in the top four just twice since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. That’s a woeful record and the Glazers must take responsibility.

In an ideal world they’d sell up and get lost, but that doesn’t sound like part of their plan right now.

The Mail reports that the Glazers value the club at £1b, and don’t wish to part ways with their most prized asset, only willing to let go of a 20% stake in the club.

We’ve also made it clear on the website previously that the supposed takeover involving Saudi Arabian Royal Family would not be welcome, and the same report suggests the American family had held talks twice with Saudi representatives.

But the Glazers are against the idea of letting go completely.

Apparently potential buyers are being put off by the idea of having to spend big on improving Old Trafford, as the stadium reportedly needs £200m worth of developments and is looking rather shabby in comparison to modern stadiums.
