Wrexham Owner Ryan Reynolds Responds Brilliantly To Fan Request To Buy Manchester United

Ryan Reynolds has firmly squashed any talk of him potentially buying Premier League side Manchester United by saying he is "already seeing someone."

The 45-year-old Hollywood actor is the proud co-owner of National League outfit Wrexham after he and fellow screen star Rob McElhenney took 100 percent ownership of the Welsh-based club in February last year.

So far, it has been an incredible journey for Reynolds, who was serenaded with his own chant last month after his side ended Stockport County's 21-game unbeaten run to book a place in the FA Trophy final.


Reynolds has expressed his love for the club on a number of occasions since taking over, so when a fan asked politely if he would buy Manchester United amid their struggles, the short, yet sweet response didn't come as much of a surprise.

As you can see in the post below, Twitter user @AdrianLalor1 commented saying: "Please buy Man Utd."

Reynolds responded: "I’m already seeing someone" in a nod to his beloved Wrexham, who currently sit in second place in the National League, eight points behind leaders Stockport.

The post that United fan Adrian commented on was a touching one. Reynolds and fellow owner McElhenney have backed a campaign to get Wrexham legend Gareth Davies to the FA Trophy final from his care home.

Davies, who made 490 appearances for the Dragons during a 16-year spell at the Racecourse Ground, has dementia and currently lives in Bay Tree House care home in Wrexham.

The 72-year-old is also in a wheelchair, which has complicated matters in regards to his travel to London, but fans of the club are determined to get Davies to Wembley.

After the hashtag #GarethIsGoingToWembley started to circulate on social media, co-owner Reynolds made a statement.

“Rob [McElhenney] and I will make sure Gareth makes it to Wembley in comfort,” he said on Twitter. “He showed up for @Wrexham_AFC and we’ll show up for him."

In an interview with Jonathan Ross last year, the host referred to Reynolds' decision to buy Wrexham as a "strange one", but the Hollywood actor definitely has no regrets.

“It’s unexpected, I suppose,” he admitted. “It’s very unexpected, but it is one of the best things I’ve ever been involved with.

“I absolutely love Wrexham, the community and all the history behind it."
