Manchester United are about to announce that their American owners, the Glazers, are carefully evaluating the club’s future as they finally ponder a possible sale, according to reports. The blockbuster development will come as music to the ears of Red Devils supporters, who have longed to campaign to oust the billionaire family from their club after 17 turbulent years of ownership.
United have undoubtedly declined under the Glazers and their reign has been dominated by fan protests and the frustrating decline on the pitch following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
But now there is finally light at the end of the tunnel for the club’s supporters, who are desperate for a change as they look to return to their former glories.
According to Sky News, the Glazers are not putting plans in place to formally announce their intention to “examine possible sources of external investment.”
That could put United up for sale, following in the footsteps of Premier League rivals Chelsea (sold earlier this year) and Liverpool.
Sources told Sky that United’s current owners had instructed investment bankers to provide advice on the process which could now include a full or partial sale.
It is understood that a statement providing clarity on the situation could come from the Glazer family or United in due course.
United have not won the Premier League since the 2012/13 season, when Sir Alex Ferguson said goodbye to Old Trafford before being replaced by David Moyes.
Their reign has been dominated by fan protests and an undeniable decline in performance on the pitch following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
