There are reports the Glazers, who own United, could follow suit.
And UFC superstar McGregor has taken to Twitter asking fans if he should step in to take over the Red Devils.
The Irish MMA ace wrote: “Hey guys, I’m thinking about buying Manchester United! What do you think?”

Shares were down 6.60 per cent at 16.12 USD this afternoon.
