Manchester United: Glazer family consider selling Premier League club

Manchester United's owners, the Glazer family, have said that they are considering selling the football club.In a statement, the club said that its owners were examining "strategic alternatives to enhance the club’s growth."Seventeen years ago, the Glazers took over Manchester United with a £790m leveraged buy-out, but fans have protested for several years against the family's ownership; opposition has grown in recent years as the club has not won the Premier League since 2013.The statement came just hours after the club announced that Cristiano Ronaldo was to leave the club with immediate effect by "mutual agreement."PA
