World richest man, Elon Musk has said that he is buying English Premier League giants, Manchester United.
Taking to his Twitter page in the early hours of Wednesday morning to make the sensational revelation which has since triggered fans’ reactions, the Tesla boss wrote: “Also, I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome”.
Musk’s tweet follows a shambolic Premier League performance by Manchester United against Brentford on Saturday.
Manchester UNITED conceded four goals in the opening 35 minutes in a 4-0 drubbing as their woeful start to the Premier League season continued.
Meanwhile, fans of the English club who are no longer comfortable with the current club’s owners, the Glazer family, and have been protesting against their leadership, welcomed Elon Musk’s tweet with open arms.
