Amazon Rumored as Potential Buyer of Manchester United

Amazon Eyeing Manchester United

It has been rumored that the Glazer family, owners of our beloved Manchester United, are considering selling the iconic football club to Amazon. This news has sent shockwaves through the world of sports, given United’s reputation as one of the most successful and popular clubs in the world.

The Glazer family, which is based in the United States, have been the owners of United since 2005. Since then, the club has seen a great deal of success on the pitch during the reign of Sir Alex Ferguson, winning numerous Premier League titles and cups. However, the family has also faced valid criticism from fans for their management of the club, with many feeling the Glazers have put their own financial interests ahead of the team’s success.

The Glazers have few friends left at Manchester United

If the rumors are true, and the Glazer family does decide to sell United to Amazon, it would be a major coup for the e-commerce giant. Amazon has been making a push into the world of sports in recent years, with its acquisition of the streaming service Twitch and its partnership with the NFL to broadcast Thursday Night Football. A takeover of Manchester United would further solidify Amazon’s position as a major player in the sports industry.

However, not everyone is convinced that a sale to Amazon would be a good thing for United. Some fans are concerned that the club would lose its identity and become just another business venture for the online retailer. There are also concerns about how Amazon, which is known for its aggressive cost-cutting measures, would handle the club’s finances.

Despite these concerns, it is clear that a potential sale of Manchester United to Amazon would be a game-changing moment in the world of sports. It would be the first time that a major football club has been owned by a tech company, and it could set a precedent for other clubs to follow suit. Only time will tell whether the rumors of a sale are true, but one thing is certain: the future of Manchester United will be closely watched by fans and the media alike.

About Alex 86 Articles
My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
