Report: Glazers could see Man United to Qatar royal family
A successful season for the young Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team that has been going with as many as five rookie starters on offense in recent weeks, has masked one of the major storylines that has followed the franchise for the last couple years.
The Glazers, who own the team, have greatly reduced spending, making the organization one of the most thrifty in the league. Now, ownership could be poised for a major windfall of cash that might or might not impact their spending when it comes to football, at least American football.
The Sun reports that the Glazers will listen to offers for Manchester United, the English Premier League power and the most valuable sports franchise in the world. According to the report, they could fetch more than $2 billion for the team from the Qatar royal family.
The Glazers bought United more than five years ago, and they’ve been leveraged to the max since. The deal could prove to be a good one for them, though, if they hit their asking price and it would certainly eliminate one of the chief complaints Bucs fans have had for several years. Heck, it would eliminate complaints United fans have had too. Stay tuned.
