(Video) Ian Wright says Manchester United fans deserve takeover
The Arsenal legend has lauded Manchester United’s fans’ constant pressure on the current owners of the club and hopes a takeover can be agreed.
News broke yesterday of the Glazer family’s intentions to sell the club after a 17-year reign, for either investment or a full sale. United confirmed the news themselves via the club website.
It is reported that the Americans are demanding a fee of around £5 billion to transfer the ownership of one of the most successful teams in world football.
Fans are ecstatic over the news, as ‘anti-Glazer’ protests have been a staple at Old Trafford since they took charge.
Wright is pleased for fans
Speaking on ITV, Wright said: “I’m pleased because the fans have not stopped from the time they’ve been there, in respect to their protests. And if that does happen, you just hope a club of Man United’s size – will they have any kind of fan involvement? Just to let them know what’s going on.
“Ronaldo should have left in the summer”
“I think they’re better without him!”

“I think the fans have done brilliantly. Hopefully, it can happen for the fans, simply because they’ve wanted it from day one and it might happen, fingers crossed for the United fans.”
