Glazer sale ‘inevitable’
Manchester United director Michael Edelson believes it is ‘inevitable’ that the Glazer family will eventually sell the Old Trafford club.
However Edelson, who has been on United’s board since 1982, insists that any change of ownership will not happen in the foreseeable future.
Many Red Devils supporters are unhappy at the way the American owners have plunged the Premier League giants into debt.
Fans’ groups have been throwing their weight behind the Red Knights, a consortium who were keen to launch a takeover bid.
The Glazers responded to the movements of the Red Knights by insisting that they would not entertain any offers for the club.
And while Edelson firmly believes that the status quo will be maintained for the foreseeable future, he does believe there will come a point when the Glazer family look to move on.
He told the Associated Press: “It is inevitable that at some time they will sell, but that will be a long way down the line.”
