Avram Glazer was asked to provide Man Utd sale update at FA Cup final, his 'response' could anger fans

Avram Glazer was asked to provide Man Utd sale update at FA Cup final, his 'response' could anger fans

He was asked to update fans at the FA Cup final.

With the season now over for Manchester United, fans' attention will be firmly fixed on the ongoing sale of the club and its potential impact on the summer transfer window.

The Premier League club has been up for sale since November but a deal is yet to be reached for a potential takeover.

Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani and INEOS owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe have both submitted several bids for United since the sale process began, while a number of other parties have expressed an interest in purchasing a minority stake in the club.

But as things stand, neither Sheikh Jassim or Ratcliffe have been named as the preferred bidder by Raine, who are handling the sale on behalf of club's owners - the Glazer family.

Co-chairman Avram Glazer attended the FA Cup final on Saturday as United were beaten 2-1 by rivals Manchester City – who will win the Treble if they Inter Milan in the Champions League final on Saturday.

It was the third time this season that Glazer had attended a match at Wembley at cost to the club, having previously travelled to the UK for the Carabao Cup final win over Newcastle and the Women's FA Cup final, which ended in defeat to Chelsea.

According to The Athletic, Glazer's two previous trips to Wembley, coming via private jet, cost the club a combined £500,000 ($536,000).

What did Glazer say about the Man Utd sale?

When asked to provide fans with an update on the protracted sale process, which threatens to disrupt the club's plans for the summer transfer window, Glazer refused to comment.

"Glazer shook hands with all United and City players, plus [Erik] ten Hag and [Pep] Guardiola, but refused to answer questions on talks with interested bidders when he walked through the media mixed zone," read a report from The Athletic.

Football finance expert Kieran Maguire has accused Glazer and his family of taking a "parasitical" approach to ownership of the club.

Meanwhile, United legend Gary Neville branded the family "unprofessional" in their handling of the sale.

Earlier this week, Neville tweeted: "[It's] plainly obvious the Glazer family aren’t going to announce anything on the ownership until the season is closed!

"They’ve been spinning it out unprofessionally for weeks and months now. They know fan protests would have been more significant than they already have if matches were still being played and the end result of the sale process is unpopular.

"Basically any family members staying in would be deemed unacceptable by all fans. Is this why they’re holding off?"
