Elon Musk Has Insisted His Initial Tweet About Buying Manchester United was a joke about him acquiring sports franchises.
With a net worth estimated at $254 billion as of August 2022, Musk is now the richest person in the world. Earlier this year, he made a bid to purchase the social networking site Twitter before backing out of the deal.
The 51-year-old now says he was joking about buying Man Utd, which may be disappointing for some of the club’s fans, with so many of them unhappy with the state of the Glazers’ ownership.
United surely need a change in ownership, but Musk is known for being a bit of an eccentric, and even some desperate MUFC supporters might have doubts about whether or not he’d be the right choice to take over from the Glazers.
Stretty News reported earlier this week that a New York-based investment fund could be considering buying the Premier League giants.
