But but but the Glazers don't want to spend any moneeeeeeeeeey!!!
It’s easy to make a outlandish bid for PR purposes secure in the knowledge it’ll be rejected out of hand.

It’s the one thing they learned from Moyes.

But the point is that they've spent a fortune in playehs and managohs since the hard shoulder shitter left, and it still isn't enough so the toys get thrown out of the pram every single season

Well they don’t want to spend any of their own money! They’ll spend big on transfers, but none of it is from owner investment. It’s money that’s generated from the club revenue. If you look at the last 10 years the Glazers have pocketed over £150m from the club, no wonder they don’t want to sell and long may they continue running the club into the ground and racking up the enormous debt :D

Let's hope that a deal never happens , he's the wealthiest man in the UK? Isn't he?
Need the Glazers to keep them where they are, and secure the 6th position on the table each season  ;)

Yes, still young and there is talent there but I think he is worth half of that price.

I made the argument on Twitter against the SZN biffs, saying his goals and assists to games is woeful for a forward  "bUt HeS nOt ThAt TyPe Of FoRwArD!!1111", I know he plays for a shithouse, but is he even a 1 in 5 forward yet?

i really don't rate him but I suppose Atletico has seen Brentford thrashing Utd and how desperate they are. So, it's gonna be hilarious if they end up paying 150M-ish for them.

Am I the only one who finds Gary Neville's logic completely batshit crazy?

The crux of his argument seems to be that until new owners come in and repair the stadium, the first team can't improve

At least, that's what I think he's saying. The billions being chucked at the squad are pointless until the rust on the roof beams gets sorted

That's basically what he's saying, isn't it?

Yep: for 4.25 Billion.  Heard a Certain Class of 92 player gave advice to Sir Rat-on-cliff going by the name of Gary "Socialism for me, not for thee" Neville. Also, I heard Rio Ferdinand is there will become Director of Football with 11 Blank Checks signing Mbappe and the Galacticos. "We are Man Utd, we do what we want".

Isn't that sort of thing breaching FFP rules? (whatever rules they actually enforce)

I mean they're all just going to do what City did- having set the precedent, but still.. there would be some sort of financial checks and balances regardless of the Sugar Daddy.

Anyway, can't stop laughing at these gushing over the billionaires taking the piss out of them! L0L! ;D

Elon Musk? Radcliffe? In ya dreams! They're trolling... using the publicity.

So, who will have “attracted their interest” tomorrow?

I’ll have a stab at Griezmann, purely on the basis he’s an overrated attention-seeking c*nt and name who’ll demand £300k a week, so perfect for them really.

United are a cash cow.  They’ve bleed it for cash for a decade and a half.


Why would they sell?

Some fans see a billionaire’s net worth of however many billions and think they are going to sink a large percentage of that into the club. It doesn’t happen. It doesn’t matter how many billions Jim Ratcliffe has, I’ve seen it around £10B but reports differ. Do the Mancs really believe he’s going to sink around half of that into their club? Deluded. If anything it will be similar to Chelsea’s takeover and will still be run as a business. No private individuals can compete with the despotic states that now own PL clubs so nothing will change for united.

I hate Radcliffe. His Ineos plant is within 2 miles of my local club, Falkirk. He employs a fair few locals and pollutes the air around town on a daily basis. A million pound would mean nothing to him but would garner so much goodwill among the locals and keep the club afloat for a long time, yet he gives them nothing, doesn't even have an advertising hoarding at the ground.

I know he is not a charity, and for all I know the club probably haven't even approached him, but every time I see Ineos sponsoring other sports teams it just grinds my gears, probably illogically, but Falkirk are shite at the moment and I am jealous.
