Elon Musk, the tech billionaire is considering bidding to buy Manchester United for £4.5 before the bidding deadline.
The internet mogul is reportedly keeping a close eye on the situation and considering whether he should take advantage of any opportunities at Old Trafford, according to sources.
However, insiders close to the sale are aware of his interest, despite the supremos of Twitter, Tesla, and SpaceX’s refusal to comment on any potential involvement.
It is said that dozens have shown interest and signed confidentiality agreements, giving them access to the “data room.”
Several Saudi Arabian organizations, unaffiliated with the people who control Newcastle United, are among them. If they decide to make a candidacy, they could require a charismatic personality to lead it.
Few could carry the weight of Musk, who already brought down his own platform by tweeting that he was going to acquire United before retracting it.
Also, I’m purchasing Manchester,’ Musk wrote on Twitter in August, as United supporters planned a protest against the Glazer family ahead of a home game against Liverpool and Erik ten Hag’s administration was off to a slow start.
His net worth was estimated to be £157 billion at the most recent calculation. He definitely has the clout and deep enough cash. United boasts 34.9 million followers on Twitter. Musk has 128.9 million.
