Manchester United owners are weighing up on selling Manchester United according to reports

Joel Glazer and Avram Glazer are weighing up on selling Manchester United after being at the helm of the club for a period of 17 years.

The brothers took over the club after the death of their father and their tenure has been nothing short of woes, especially with the fans having lost faith in them.

Manchester United's debt has been rising year by year with the majority of the fans blaming the Glazer family for being business-minded other than trying to invest in the club.
