Glazers ready to listen to offers for Man Utd

The Glazers have realised United was not the cash cow they believes it would be, when they bought the club in a deal that cost £831million, three years ago.

One well-placed City source said: “What we’re all hearing is United hasn’t turned out to be what the Glazers thought it was. When they paid so much, they were convinced a lot of money was to be made.

“Buying United wasn’t about owning a football club, but a business decision and from an investment point of view it’s been little short of disastrous.”
