The economic climate, super league collapse and Chelsea sale are the main drivers behind this.

The Glazers bought Manure for £790m. 2 years previously the club were champions.

Chelsea was recently sold for £4bn. Manure would be worth something similar.
The last trophy won by the club was in 2017. The last title was 2013. Go figure.

Chelsea was sold for 2.5 Billion. This is considered way over price as football clubs aren't really profit makers. The extra couple Billion was a commitment to upgrading facilities.

The Glazers bought Manu for SFA, the leveraged loan meant that Man U bought Man U on the never never, the Glazers were never on the hook for a brass farthing.

They bled off Utd like the parasites they are.

The collapse of the super league plan is smoking out a few of the owners, like the Glazers and FSG.  It will take someone with very deep pockets to buy a club like Man U these days, especially given the investment we're hearing about that's needed in the stadium and training facilities. Probably one of the oil nations coming in again.  The Glazers will probably hold out for a very high offer so there's no guarantee the club will be sold anytime soon.
From doubters to believers again.

Rumours of Beckham heading a consortium to buy United. Maybe heís gonna be the face for his Qatari buddies?

Is Ratcliffe a serious option? Could he afford it?

As a United fan I donít particularly care who buys it, as long as they put decent football men in charge of the football side and donít get involved in signings etc themselves.

Looking for recommendations for a hotel that is near enough Old Trafford but also near enough city centre?
Heading over in April to run the Manchester Marathon, the start finish line is around Old Trafford somewhere. Will be flying home soon after the race that evening so if I can get a late check out at hotel so I can shower etc so hopefully get a hotel near enough the city so I can get back to Airport without much hassle, but want it also near enough Old Trafford so I donít have a big walk the morning of the race.

Some of the names mentioned look promising. Apple would be unreal.

Apple would be in it to make money. Probably rename the stadium which would be an absolute no go for most United fans.

I think most fans are resigned to naming rights if it means you get a brand new stadium. I would be.

The Hilton at the Old Trafford cricket ground or Trafford Hall hotel are very close to Old Trafford and both are one side of metrolink stations, only ten mins on a tram into town (Hilton-Old Trafford met stop & Trafford Hall Hotel-Trafford Bar met stop). £6 or £7 in a taxi to town from there too.
