Glazers still ‘not interested’ in selling Man Utd with further protests planned

The Glazer family are not interested in selling Manchester United, despite supporters continuing to call for their heads to roll in the wake of the Super League scandal.

Supporters stormed Old Trafford recently to voice their frustrations towards the Glazers, which date back all the way to 2005, forcing the postponement of the Premier League match against Liverpool as a result of their actions.

According to The Times, those fans involved are already planning further protests, with the rescheduled Liverpool game expected to be a target alongside the upcoming home match against Leicester City, but The Guardian do not expect the protests to work.

Per the report, the Glazers intend to stay on at Old Trafford as they plan to grow the club’s value from ÂŁ3bn to ÂŁ7bn in the coming years.

The American owners are not thought to have been scared off by the protests and remain committed to the club, insisting they are the right people to help the business side of the club grow over years to come.

Can you believe it? They’re only thinking about money? Shock.

The Times do add, however, that the Glazers would be forced to think about any offers of around the ÂŁ4bn mark.

With current shares in the club worth around ÂŁ2.1bn, any potential buyer would need to offer up more than that to give the Glazers a profit, and the American owners could also encounter fees from banks and lenders which they would ask a buyer to cover, which would take the price to closer to that ÂŁ4bn.

If nobody can come up with that kind of money, the Glazers will continue their mission to grow United’s brand.

With the owners not going anywhere, United’s immediate focus will be on preparing themselves for these upcoming protests. They are already facing an FA investigation over their failure to adequately prepare first time around and club officials will be adamant that will not happen again.

United were angered by suggestions that they had allowed protesters on to the pitch, instead condemning the supporters who chose to force their way through locked doors to escalate the situation.
