‘Selling the Glazers is on par with the feeling of winning the title!’: Manchester United fans rejoice at much-maligned owners’ shock decision to explore selling the club
- Manchester United fans have tweeted their delight over rumors the club could be sold
- Glazers could sell Red Devils under new investment plans
- Fans have recently spoken out against the owners and are excited about the prospect
- It’s the same day Man United terminated Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract
Manchester United fans are reveling in the news that the Glazer family are considering selling the club.
The American family took over the club from Old Trafford in 2005, but protests from fans have continued throughout this period amid widespread anger at the way the Red Devils have been run, all the more that some believe a lack of investment has been made at the club.
As news emerged that they were considering selling the club, fans were quick to express their delight that Manchester United’s time under the Glazers was coming to an end.
News that the Glazers could sell Manchester United sparked a largely cheering response online

An immediate response came in the form of the short phrase “Don’t get me excited”, accompanied by a laughing emoji, a praying emoji and a happy gif.
Another wrote: “Selling the Glazers would be on par with the feeling of winning the title. I don’t care how ridiculous that sounds.
A fan account wrote: ‘WE ARE SO CLOSE!! #GlazersOut,” another said “YES YES YES,” while a third simply retweeted the news with the word “PLEASE.”
News of the club’s possible sale isn’t the only major story to come out of Old Trafford on Tuesday, with Manchester United confirming that Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract there has been torn up by mutual consent.
One Twitter user commented on both stories saying, ‘Ronaldo gets the boot and this news on the same day??!!!’, while someone else said, ‘Ronaldo saves the club yet again’ in response to news of a possible sell out.
A cynical backlash even believed the news was made public at the time just to distract from the chaos surrounding Ronaldo’s acrimonious exit from Manchester United.

Manchester United’s competitive fixtures for the World Cup are on hold, although they will add up quickly thereafter, as the Red Devils continue to chase four trophies, starting with a three-day Carabao Cup tie against Burnley after the final in Qatar.
