Report: Man Utd Owners Name Asking Price To Sell Club

Manchester United's owners, the Glazer family, have reportedly set an asking price as they look to sell the club amid protests from their supporters.

Read: Man Utd Owners To Sell Club?

The American owners bought the Old Trafford club in 2005 for a reported £790 million (R15.6 billion), although their ownership has not gone down well with the fanbase over the years.

The Sun has now reported that a bid of £4 billion (R79.2 billion) would tempt to the Glazer family to give up control of the Manchester outfit.

It is believed that price tag is down to the club's "unique heritage" and its "commercial pulling power" to attract big sponsors.

That "pulling power" was evident recently when the club announced a new kit sponsorship deal with German-based technology company TeamViewer, who will reportedly pay United £235 million (R4.6 billion) over five years from next season.

The Glazers were one of the frontrunners for the European Super League that was announced last Sunday, which only worsened their strained relationship with the club's supporters.

Red Devils fans made their way to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon to protest against the Glazer family after their failed attempt to join the Super League.
