The failed Super League project will have many consequences. While UEFA is considering how they could sanction 12 outlaws, the owners of some of the clubs are serious about withdrawing from European football. The Mirror reports that the American Glazer family has already taken certain steps leading to the sale of Manchester United.
Let us remind you, Glazers bought one of the most popular clubs in the world 16 years ago for 900,000,000 euros, and as you can hear today, they are ready to leave it to the new owner for a much higher figure - 4,600,000,000 euros!
Before the crisis caused by the coronavirus, Avram Glazer and his brother received an offer from Asia worth 4,000,000,000 and did not accept it. Their position is as follows: Manchester United is a global world brand, the largest club on the planet, and as such is economically viable even in these difficult times.
The media speculate that the main reason for the desire to sell is the failure of the project of creating the Super League, which would further increase the value of the club from Old Trafford. Without the Super League, experts estimate, the biggest clubs will have years of stagnation, and the Glazer family is not ready to wait and take risks.
Especially since after the departure of Alex Ferguson, the Devils can never stabilize, make a serious team and attack the title. There are also fan protests. Certainly not the first. Many years ago, United fans tried to force the Americans to sell the club - but combined with dissatisfaction with the attempt to create a new competition, it seems that yesterday's protests were much more radical than the previous ones.
Cameras even recorded the burning of American flags ... The Mirror also states that the departure of CEO Ed Woodward from the club clearly speaks of the direction that Manchester United has set for the coming years - it is certainly the European Super League, and as this project did not receive the necessary support around the planet, some things will obviously happen at Old Trafford.
They will have to change many things True, it seems unrealistic for someone to be able to meet the billionaire demands of the Glazer family in times of crisis, but ... Hasn't football surprised and denied reality so many times? United is one of the biggest European clubs and we doubt that there will be no interest, even in this time of pandemic.
