Sponsorship expert claims the Glazers could sell Manchester United

Manchester United could be forced to pay £15m in fines following the European Super League fiasco

The Glazers could sell Manchester United for the right price

According to Sky Sports, sponsorship expert Ian George has claimed that the Glazers could be open to selling Manchester United.

The Americans have once again come under the scanner in the aftermath of the European Super League fiasco. The protests by fans have since snowballed, leading to last Sunday’s invasion of the Old Trafford pitch.

The Americans paid £790million to purchase United back in 2005. Today, the club is valued at an impressive £3.05bn. While the value may have skyrocketed, one thing that hasn’t is the owners’ popularity amongst the fan base.

United fans have come out in force against the Glazers

It was revealed earlier this week that the Glazers were keen to double United’s worth and had no intentions of selling just yet. George’s admission now will give fresh hope for United fans.

“I do believe if the price is right, and there will be a handful of people around the globe who could afford the two, three or four billion, which is arguably going to be a required tariff.”

A football sponsorship expert, he has had previous dealings with the Glazers and believes that it is possible the right price could see their resolve waver.

“It’s my personal opinion. I think perhaps yes if you look at the Big Six clubs, with the Glazers I think approaching 20 years of ownership some people will feel that it is time to move on.”

Glazers have never been particularly liked at Old Trafford.

Hitting them where it hurts

Fans have also taken steps to reach out to club sponsors, expressing their distaste of the United ownership. This has led to the likes of Team Viewer being given negative reviews on TrustPilot, to their association with the club.

There have also been calls from various fans on Twitter to boycott kit sponsors Adidas among others that pump money into the club. George believes that is something that could eventually work against the Glazers.

“There will be an impact from sponsors, there are various fan groups which are thinking ‘enough is enough’. The chances are they will sell for a far greater price than they bought.”

Adidas have been annoyed with falling shirt sales of late
