Manchester United for the last 2 seasons has struggled a lot and has gone from being the best team in English football to the twentieth position after 2 games.

There has been a lot of protest by the fans against current club owners The Glazers family whom the fans desperately want out. The Glazers might sell their shares worth £ 4.9 Billion.

This is not the first time the fans at the club have protested; there was another one in may 2021 which delayed the match against Liverpool by a considerable time. Fans blame The Glazer family for the decline since Sir Alex Ferguson left which was supposed to be the most significant English club and is now in the mud in the relegation zone.

The club was linked with 50+ player transfers this season and has not managed to sign a big name. The club is now open to offers for Cristiano Ronaldo also.

On the other hand, we have Elon Musk, a business magnate who buys Whatever he wants and takes it from scratch to gold. His recent bids to buy Twitter are a testament to how the billionaire buys whatever he wants.

This joke was a part of an ongoing joke about political allegiance. Later Elon Musk clarified that it was a joke and that if he were to buy any club it would be Manchester United as it is his favorite boyhood club.
