Glazers ‘to seek investment in Manchester United with an outright sale a possibility’

The Glazers ‘to explore outright SALE of Manchester United as they look for potential sources of outside investment’, with the American family’s controversial 17-year reign possibly coming to an end

  • Glazers are reportedly set to announce their intention of seeking investment
  • Could open up the possibility of the club being sold outright to new owners
  • Reports claimed investment bankers were being consulted to advise on process
  • Could see their highly controversial 17-year reign brought to an end 

Reports have emerged suggesting the Glazers are set to seek new investment in Manchester United, potentially opening the door to an outright sale and the end of their highly controversial 17-year reign at the club. 

The American family took over the club in 2005 and their reign has been marred by fan protests and general disgruntlement at the way in which they have run the club. 

Particular umbrage has been taken in recent years at their lack of investment in the team, stadium and training ground while taking dividends out of the club on a yearly basis. 

Regular chants demanding the removal of the Glazers can be heard at Old Trafford and disgruntled supporters could be set to get their wish with Sky News reporting that their search for further investment could lead to an outright sale.
