Elon Musk, 51, is currently the richest person on the planet, but he loves to appear in the spotlight for unnecessary and irrelevant issues over the years, like claiming to have bought Twitter, which he did not take over eventually.
This billionaire technology magnate, drove Manchester United supporters into a frenzy early Wednesday morning when he tweeted that he was ready to acquire the English club from the Glazer family.
Why did Elon Musk announce he was taking over Manchester United from the Glazers?
More demonstrations are planned ahead of Liverpool’s visit to Old Trafford next Monday, as Red Devils fans are keen to get rid of its present owners, the Glazer family and they have also planned not to enjoy the home match from the stadium.
Despite the Glazer family’s strong control over United since their contentious 2005 acquisition, Tesla and SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk has provided a ray of hope to people who are fed up with the administration.
The richest person on the globe said in a pretty perplexing social media post, which aroused excitement and suspicion among Red Devils fans, that he will acquire United in the near future.
According to Musk’s own twitter feed, he said, “Also, I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome”

Although it wasn’t an official expression of interest, it didn’t stop United fans from becoming excited about the prospect of the South African taking charge.
Many saw Musk’s tweet, which earned over 140,000 likes within an hour of being posted, as the latest in a string of irreverent social media musings by the billionaire. Nonetheless, it comes at a moment of significant turmoil in the vicinity of Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag, Manchester United’s new manager, lost his first two Premier League games, and star scorer Cristiano Ronaldo and some other players are anxious to leave Old Trafford.
