Manchester United sale: Glazers consider minority sale as bids need to go higher

There is not full agreement among the siblings, with Joel and Avram Glazer desiring to either keep the club or keep a stake in the club. The latter made a conspicuous appearance at Wembley for the Carabao Cup final win over Newcastle United.

Elliott Management, who until last summer owned Milan before a takeover from RedBird Capital Partners, are meanwhile one of the groups who have offered financing as the Glazers also consider what to do with Old Trafford.

United have been in talks with architect firm Populous about what can be done with the stadium – in terms of either redevelopment or total reconstruction – and it has been central to the takeover process given how greatly a modern ground would increase the value of the club.

Bidders have pointed to how the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has added at least £1.5bn to the value of the north London club, as the arena has become one of the primary entertainment venues in Europe.
