Manchester United announced late on Tuesday that it was looking at “all strategic alternatives, including new investments in the club, sale or other transactions involving the company”. The club is owned by the Glazer family. Analysts say the Glazer family could make around £5 billion ($6 billion) from the sale of the club they spent £790 million on, largely with debt, in 2005.

The news came almost immediately after the club reached a mutual agreement with the star player cristiano ronaldo, which means that the Portuguese superstar’s second difficult time at the club is over in an instant. This happened in the aftermath of ronaldoexplosive interview with journalist Piers Morgan in which he criticized owner, club and coach Erik Ten Hag.

The last time United won the Premier League was in the 2012-13 season and since then have struggled to reach the top under the legendary manager Sir. Alex Ferguson. The owners have been criticized by fans for the way the club is run.

Now, just days after it was reported that the Glazer family was looking to sell the club, a SkySports journalist has questioned one of the owners, Avram Glazer, about the matter and the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo is gone.
