Fans have reacted with puzzlement and amusement to reports that American tech giant Apple could buy Manchester United.

With United’s American owners, the Glazer family, announcing this week that the club could be sold in a deal worth more than £5bn, potential investors are starting to emerge.

A report in the Daily Star claimed that the makers of the iPhone and MacBook could launch a £5.8bn takeover bid.

There is no doubt that Apple would seek to exploit the many business opportunities that would arise from owning a sports team despite having no prior experience managing one.

Quite a few United fans liked the prospect of being owned by a corporation valued at around £2.4 trillion, making them the richest club in world football at a stroke.

‘I’d take Apple’ and ‘make it happen’ were just two of the positive posts on Twitter, suggesting that some fans would favor Tim Cook and his California-based company controlling the funds.

The Glazers confirmed this week that they are ready to sell United after 17 years at the club.

Other fans reacted with a healthy dose of humor, suggesting that a rebranded ‘Mac-Chester United’ would henceforth be known as ‘iReds’ and would play home games at ‘iOld Trafford’ or the ‘iPhone Stadium’.

An amusing tweet from a United supporter suggested the new signings would be revealed in the style of Apple’s highly anticipated keynotes revealing new gadgets.

Unsurprisingly, some United fans took the opportunity to criticize bitter rivals Liverpool, whose American owners are also inviting an investment or takeover.

We have Apple, INEOS, Dubai, Amazon and other major players wanting to buy Manchester United. Meanwhile the Liverpool over there has been for sale for almost two weeks and not one iota,” read one tweet.

‘And Primark is buying Liverpool’, read another scathing post.

Another points out that United’s wealth of £2trn under Apple would dwarf that of Newcastle United’s Saudi Arabian owners and Manchester City’s Abu Dhabi regime.

Other tweets suggested that a purchase could bring many United fans to Apple’s product range.

“If Apple buys Manchester United, I’ll finally become an iPhone,” he said, while another said: “I might buy an old iPhone 10 Hag.”

Others were naturally more pessimistic about the outlook, writing that United are ‘being sold down the river’ and ‘I don’t think this will end well’.

It came after the Glazer family, who have owned United since 2005, said this week they were looking for “strategic alternatives” that could mean additional outside investment or the sale of the club.

The Glazers want at least £5bn for United, but interest has yet to be reported from the UK’s richest man, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, Dubai investors and another major corporation in Amazon.
