Bidder for Man Utd

Recommended Posts

Fans group Shareholders United (SU) are opposed to any takeover by American businessman Glazer, who is widely believed to be the man behind the approach to buy the club.

The group are hoping to recruit 100,000 members and acquire more than 10% of the club's shares to put Glazer off making a takeover bid.

They have now been handed a major financial lift with one wealthy fan putting forward ?750,000 to aid their bid to gain some control of United.

The unnamed supporter is previously known to SU and has agreed to lodge the shares he intends to purchase with the organisation and they hope other supporters will follow suit.

"This is the most significant one-off share purchase we have had," said SU spokesman Oliver Houston.

"We would urge the Manchester business community and any other United fans around the world to do what they can to safeguard the future of the club they love."

SU have also tried to enrol the help of Fifa president Sepp Blatter in the dispute to strengthen their case against any takeover.


What is everyone's opinion on this and do you think he will buy it or fail

I wouldn't be so quick to judge him. He has helped bring the Tampa Bay Bucs to become a really good team in the NFL. I don't see why he couldn't do well in the EPL. Plus hopefully he will bring in some money to buy ManU a defense which is something they don't really have at the moment.

I don't want someone to take over who has never even been to Old trafford before. Sure he would put money in for new players, but he wil also raise ticket prices which won't go down well.
