Manchester United fans have been protesting against the club’s owners – the Glazer family – for a long time. They may rejoice at the news that English businessman Michael Knighton is making an attempt to buy the Red Devils. United’s owners have no intention of selling but could be pressured to part ways with the club.
“Everyone knows we need new owners. This is my aspiration and these are my goals. We are making excellent progress, continuing to have conversations. We are now working on the offer. This is a hostile bid, which simply means that the club is not officially for sale, but my intention is to present these owners with a legitimate, compelling offer that says: “The road is over for you, it’s time to go because your time is up “.
“Fans around the world are fed up with this regime. The excitement of the new season ended after seeing the performance against Brighton. The club is in crisis and will remain in crisis as long as it is with these owners. That’s the situation,” Nathan said.
Michael Knighton made an attempt to buy Manchester United in 1989. His offer was 20 million pounds, a record for its time. The proposal was accepted, but subsequently withdrawn. Following this development, Knighton bought Carlisle United in 1992 and owned the club until 2002.
