Billionaire Elon Musk admitted that he only posted tweets for fun but promised to buy MU when he had real intentions.
Famous for his shocking statements on social networks, recently, billionaire Elon Musk shared on twitter that he is pursuing the acquisition of MU, the most famous football team on the planet.
“I’m buying Manchester United, welcome to all,” Musk said in a tweet.
However, very quickly, this billionaire corrected that he was only lying on social networks for fun.
“No, this is a common type of lie on Twitter. I don’t buy any sports clubs,” Elon Musk posted a correction on his personal page.
In addition, this billionaire also shared: “However, if I buy a sports club, I will buy MU. It’s the team I’ve loved since I was a kid.”
The source of this joke probably comes from some fans urging Musk to buy Manchester United instead of buying Twitter. He is trying to get out of a $44 billion deal to buy the social media company that brought him to court.
When this billionaire announced that he was buying MU, many Red Devils fans must be happy. Because, unlike the Glazer family, Elon Musk is a real billionaire.
He is a South African-American engineer, financier, inventor, technology entrepreneur and philanthropist.
According to statistics, Elon Musk is the richest person in the world at the moment, when his net worth surpasses the $273 billion mark in April 2022.
In recent years, Manchester United fans have protested against the Glazers, who bought the club for £790 million ($955.51 million) in 2005, due to the team’s difficulties on the pitch.
The anti-Glazer movement grew stronger last year after United were involved in an unsuccessful attempt to form a breakaway European Super League.
Perhaps with Elon Musk speaking on Twitter is just a joke, but try asking if MU is not suffering enough or not.
The current state of this team is extremely poor. Last season, this team only finished in 6th place on the rankings with the lowest score in Premier League history. This season, after 2 rounds, the Red Devils all lost and for the first time in 100 years stood at the bottom of the rankings.
