Elon Musk going to buy ‘Manchester’ football club, tweet

WASHINGTON: Elon Musk tweeted on Tuesday evening that he is buying Manchester United Football Club. However, it is not yet clear whether the American billionaire is serious about buying the football club.

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, 51, who has a habit of posting inflammatory statements on social media just for fun, said: “Also, I’m buying Manchester United.”


Earlier he made a tweet about supporting the two major political parties of America (Republican and Democratic Party).

Let us tell you that Manchester United Football Club is a storied English football club commonly known as Man United or simply United. is a professional football club based in the Old Trafford area of ​​Greater Manchester, England. It was founded in 1878 as Newton Heath LYR Football Club, but was renamed Manchester United in 1902.

Manchester United is currently led by the six children of the late American businessman Malcolm Glazer, who took a controlling stake in the franchise in 2005. The Glazer family also owns the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, an NFL franchise in Florida.

There was no immediate reaction from the club or its owners on Musk’s tweet. That’s why people are taking Musk seriously.

Shares of the team listed on the New York Stock Exchange have posted a year-on-year decline, but closed Tuesday with a market capitalization of US$2.1 billion.

Manchester United fans have criticized the team’s management for their poor performance in recent years, as well as their involvement in a plan to launch a new “Super League” featuring Europe’s richest teams.

The Red Devils finished sixth in the English Premier League last season but have had a decent start this year.

After two straight defeats, including a humiliating 0-4 loss at Brentford last weekend, Manchester United are currently in last place – the first time they have been at the bottom of the charts in 30 years.

Further protests against the Glazer family’s ownership of the club are planned ahead of United’s next game at home to Liverpool on 22 August.

As far as Elon Musk is concerned, the world’s richest man recently sold nearly US$7 billion worth of Tesla shares and a big deal about his aborted plan to buy Twitter in the US state of Delaware, in a legal battle.
