This has been a difficult start to United’s new season.

After two defeats, they are now bottom of the Premier League. Star player Cristiano Ronaldo could be leaving, and new signings are not happening.

They are dissatisfied with their club’s performance and the Manchester United Supporters Trust stated earlier this week that it would “demand answers from the club’s management” after a “humiliatingly poor” start to the season.


Since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement as manager in 2013, the club has been in decline. Fingers have been pointed to the Glazer family who own the club since 2005.


In recent years, there have been many protests against Glazers’ ownership. One in May 2021 saw the Red Devils’ match with Liverpool postponed.


United supporters plan another protest against the American family at their latest meeting with bitter rivals, Monday.


Musk’s interest in the club was welcomed by some fans. It was valued at $4.6bn (PS3.8bn).

Ryan Babel, a former winger for Liverpool and the Netherlands, saw an opportunity.


Many fans were curious about what a Musk-run club would look like. After all, he owns both SpaceX and Tesla electric cars.







However, Musk’s dream of launching a football team was only a fleeting thought.


Musk has over 103 million Twitter followers and is currently trying unwind his $44bn offer to purchase it. Later, he clarified that he was just having fun.


United didn’t comment on the speculation.


As the UK was awakening, Musk was asked if the bid was serious. He replied at 5:34 BST, “No, this joke is on Twitter.” I don’t buy any sports teams. ”


He said, “Stand up is my side hustle. ”


He is a fan of the Red Devils and tweets: “Although Man U would be my favorite team if it was a team.” As a child, they were my favorite team. ”


We never know what the future will bring.
