Elon Musk is the richest person in the world. He tweeted that he was going to buy Manchester United, a premier league football club. However, he did not offer further details in the tweet.

Musk is known for making random tweets. Hence, it is not clear whether he actually plans to buy the football club.

In his tweet, he wrote, “I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome.” The owner of Manchester United is the American Glazer family. The family has not commented on the tweet.

Last year, it was reported that the Glazers planned to sell the club for more than 4 billion pounds. Elon Musk, on the other hand, is currently facing a suit against Twitter.

Musk tweeted that he wanted to buy Twitter but later decided to exit the 44 billion agreement.

The football club has one of the most supporters, as Manchester United has been the champions of England 20 times, and has won the European Cup for 3 times.

The Red Devil has not won an away game for 6 games in a row. This causes dissatisfaction among fans. Many fans perceived that the Glazers did not have ambitions to bring the  Club to where it was under the era of Sir Alex Ferguson.

The club finished 6th last season, while their rival, Manchester City won the Premier League Title. Dissatisfied, some fans urged Musk to buy Manchester United instead of Twitter.

Manchester United fans have protested against the Glazers due to the attempt to form European Super League.


Musk is known for unconventional tweets. It is difficult to tell whether he is serious or he is just trolling. Recently, he fought the US regulators for attempting to take Tesla private and smoked marijuana in a podcast.
