Sir Jim Ratcliffe told the "unrealistic" price the Glazers are demanding for Man Utd, it's astronomical

Sir Jim Ratcliffe told the "unrealistic" price the Glazers are demanding for Man Utd, it's astronomical's a lot of money.

Manchester United's owners have recently put the club up for sale and with that comes a long list of potential buyers.

The club released an official statement last week to announce the club and board are looking at 'strategic alternatives'.

One part of the statement read: "The process is designed to enhance the club's future growth, with the ultimate goal of positioning the club to capitalize on opportunities both on the pitch and commercially.

"As part of this process, the Board will consider all strategic alternatives, including new investment into the club, a sale, or other transactions involving the Company.

"This will include an assessment of several initiatives to strengthen the club, including stadium and infrastructure redevelopment, and expansion of the club’s commercial operations on a global scale, each in the context of enhancing the long-term success of the club’s men’s, women’s and academy teams, and bringing benefits to fans and other stakeholders."

How much will United sell for?

Sir Jim Ratcliffe has been rumoured to be interested in purchasing the club and is a lifelong United fan.

The Daily Star explains the situation and looks at what it would take for Ratcliffe to buy the club from the Glazer family: “Ratcliffe will certainly need to dig very deep into his already huge pockets if he is to take the club of the Glazers’ hands.

“The controversial Americans [Glazers] had put a price tag of around £8.25billion on the Red Devils, but have been told this is unrealistic.

“If their demands are sensationally met, United would become the most expensive sports team in history.”
