Manchester United confirmed on Tuesday night that the club has been put up for sale by owners, the Glazer family.

The Raine Group and Rothschild and Co have been appointed as exclusive financial advisors to oversee the process. United said it is designed to enhance future growth, but added that the club ‘will consider all strategic alternatives, including new investment into the club, a sale, or other transactions’.

According to Daily Mail, the Glazers are demanding at least £5billion to sell Manchester United.

The hated American owners have been in power at Old Trafford since 2005. However, they have come under pressure from fan groups for some time to end their 17-year reign which has been criticised from the outset over the leveraged £790million purchase which heaped huge debt on United.
