Elon Musk claims he’s ‘buying Manchester United’


Elon Musk, the eccentric CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, tweeted Tuesday that he “bought Manchester United” as one of the most famous football clubs started their Premier League season in turmoil.

Musk made the comment in a series of tweets where he joked about who he supported politically. Then came the tweet about the Red Devils.

“Moreover, I am very welcome to buy Manchester United.”

The comment provoked some interesting reactions on social media.

It’s unclear if Musk meant it, but adding more fuel to the chaotic start to the 2022-23 season that Manchester United have already been through wasn’t exactly what they probably needed.

Manchester United started the season earlier this month with a 2-1 loss to Brighton and were knocked out by Brentford 4-0 last weekend. The roster has players from all over the world such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford and has not won a Premier League game since May.

The team has not won at Old Trafford from opponents from the Premier League since March. The club has not finished in first place in the league since 2013.

In addition, reports earlier Tuesday indicated that Cristiano Ronaldo could look for a new club as the transfer window draws to a close.

Ronaldo pushed back the rumors in an Instagram post, saying the media was “telling lies”.

Manchester United Plc is the ownership group that controls the club. Joel and Avie Glazer are co-chairs of the club. The Glazer family also owns the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

According to Forbes, Manchester United is worth about $4.6 billion. Amid protests from fans last year, the Glazer family reportedly set an asking price of about $4 billion. The family bought the club in 2005 for more than $956 million.
