Man Utd and Liverpool fighting for same investors as Glazers make tactical sale decision

Football finance experts believe the Glazers have put Manchester United up for sale because they did not want to be gazumped by Liverpool.

The fear is that there are so few billionaires or consortiums in the market that if Liverpool is sold then United’s options could be severely limited. Therefore, less than a month after Liverpool’s US owners announced they were exploring optionsincluding a possible sale, the Glazer family followed suit.

Now they are both chasing very limited options even if United fans are certainly happier to see the Glazers selling than Liverpool supporters who have enjoyed success under John W Henry. United’s biggest issue is the price – it could be sold up to £8billion – and also Old Trafford needing major redevelopment.

Chelsea attracted huge interest when Roman Abramovich was forced into selling because of Government sanctions. But that sale had to be rushed through to meet a Government deadline and it also came before the global economy spiralled even further towards disaster.

Liverpool and United were both signed up to the European Super League but were forced to pull out after a huge fan backlash. US owners in the Premier League now fear they will not be able to maximise their full potential financially and, coming soon after the ESL disaster, that must have played into their thoughts
