It rains in the wet for Manchester United: after the termination of the contract of Cristiano Ronaldo, the family Glazer – owner of the club – released a statement underlining how she is willing to listen to “strategic alternatives”. The red devils, therefore, are on the market: the current owner is looking for buyers, and among the many eligible candidates there would also be a former footballer.
As reported by the Financial Times David Beckhamwho already leads a consortium of investors owning theInter Miami, would be interested in investing in the Old Trafford club. With the stock having literally soared on the stock market, the value of Manchester United would be around 7 billion euros. Obviously, the English star cannot invest this figure out of his own pocket, likely to be joined by an American or Middle Eastern group.
In previous years there had been talk of a possible investment by the “Spice Boy” to try and take over United. The rumor now seems to be back, among other possible names there are Sir Jim Ratcliffe, group owner Ineos, following Josh Harris and David Blitzer (both already present in the world of football with shares of Crystal Palace).
