The reason why the Glazers want to take Man United off the market has been revealed

The reason why the Glazers want to take Man United off the market has been revealed

Manchester United have been put on sale since November 2022

The reason why Manchester United could be taken off the market by the Glazers has been revealed.

Back in November 2022, it was announced that United have been put on sale by the Glazers as they considered all strategic alternatives for the future of the club.

However, despite strong interests from Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim and INEOS boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a deal is yet to be agreed.

Both parties have placed bids close to the original asking price of £6 billion, but the Glazers are now believed to be having second thoughts about selling the club.

On Saturday night, according to the Daily Mail, the Glazers are now thinking about taking United off the market.

It has been reported that the American owners have increased their asking price to a whopping £10 billion.

A source told the Daily Mail: “The Glazers are thick-skinned and won’t be influenced by any negative fan reactions.”

The report claimed that the Glazers would try to sell the club again in 2025 when they hope financial and environmental factors may attract more bidders.

In addition, the Glazers hope manager Erik ten Hag can win more major trophies with United, which will help boost the ultimate sale price.


Also, the Glazers think the expansion of the FIFA Club World Cup to 32 teams, the uplift in TV rights revenues, and the 2026 World Cup, which is hosted in the United States will help their wish to sell United for between £7 billion and £10 billion.

This summer, United have spent big to bring in the likes of Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojund. They have also managed to bring in midfielder Sofyan Amrabat on loan from Fiorentina on transfer deadline day.

Having only collected six points from their opening three matches, United will be hoping to clinch a much-needed victory when they take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
