The Glazer family, it’s fair to say, have never been the most popular owners of Manchester United Football Club.
Although it has to be said, the protests against their ownership are not as vociferous now as they previously have been.
But, according to The Daily Star, the Saudi royals, headed by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, are more than keen to take ownership of the club.
Our source infers that two previous bids, the second being a huge £ billion, have been refused.
But with money, seemingly, being no object, our quoted source is implying that a third bid, of an even higher magnitude, could be forthcoming.
But would a change in ownership prove to be the catalyst that would see Manchester United return to their former status or could a step into the unknown come with its own set of inherent problems?
I guess nobody could say for sure but, in my opinion, something drastic has to be done to stop the downward slide the club appears to be currently experiencing and to which an end doesn’t appear to be in sight.
Is a change in ownership a solution?
