Apple is reportedly interested in buying Manchester United for 5.8 billion pounds ($7 billion, around Rs 571 crore), which would make it the world’s richest football club. The media gave this information on Thursday.
The British club’s US billionaire owners brothers Avram and Joel Glazer are keen to sell it to the highest bidder after an initial price of 8.25 billion pounds, the Daily Star reported.
The American giants have no experience owning a football club of Manchester United’s size. Apple will be in talks with banks in the coming weeks for a possible sale.
