The last couple of weeks have been hectic at Manchester United, to say the least. Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial departure coupled with the Glazer family’s sudden willingness to part ways with the club have left supporters pondering what’s next.
Earlier this month, the Glazer family made a statement confirming they were exploring options to potentially sell the club 17 years after they took full control of the Old Trafford club.
Since then, the American owners have allowed Manchester United to spiral and accept mediocrity, with European powerhouses overtaking them each year.
Supporters have been united in their objective to oust the owners for many years and it looks like their wish is finally coming true and now, there is another positive update in the story.
According to the BBC, it’s believed that if the Glazer family engages in a full sale, it is likely that it will be completed before the end of this season. It’s also added that a sale will only be completed for the right price.
The situation surrounding Ronaldo has now been resolved and that means the big talking point is the future of Manchester United and the Glazers’ very conscious decision to make their plans public hint that they’re no longer in it for the long run.
Make no mistake about it, the Glazers have only been interested in using the club as a cash machine and with football developing at a frightening pace, any club neglecting the actual football aspect will slip behind their rivals.
If a sale is concluded before the end of the season, which would be perfect timing, the new owners must adhere to supporters and create a bond with the people who built the club from the ground.
Joel Glazer did not communicate with fans once until the disgraced launch of the European Super League in 2021 – that will not be accepted under any new regime.
