(Reuters) – Manchester United owners have set £ 4 billion ($ 5.55 billion) as the selling price to sell the football club, the Irish Mirror https: // reported on Saturday. “Investors in the city believe that an offer close to its £ 4bn asking price would tempt brothers Joel and Avram (Glazer), who effectively run the club, to relinquish control,” the newspaper said, without mentioning the source of your information. Manchester United officials were not immediately available for comment on Saturday. A small group of Manchester United fans gathered outside the club’s training ground on Thursday to protest the Glazer family property as the backlash continued after their involvement in the separatist European Super League. United were among six Premier League clubs to sign up with the new company before pulling out on Tuesday amid a storm of protests from fans, players and the British government. United co-chairman Joel Glazer apologized to fans on Wednesday, saying the hierarchy showed no respect for the “deep traditions” of the English game. United was bought by the American Glazers family for £ 790 million in 2005. The club has been listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 2012, but the Glazers retain majority ownership. Manchester United Executive Vice President Ed Woodward (NASDAQ :), one of the leading figures in the European Super League breakaway project, will leave his post at United at the end of 2021, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.
