Following the failure of Tesla’s bid for Twitter, which has resulted in a protracted court fight, Elon Musk has set his sights on acquiring the English football club Manchester United.
“To be clear, I support the left half of the Republican Party and the right half of the Democratic Party,” he tweeted. And shortly after this tweet, he said, “Also, I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome.” One can never know how serious Musk is when it comes to his Tweets but the hint of this news has left Manchester United buzzing.
ManU fans have previously called for the departure of the club’s current American owners, the Glazer family, due to the club’s dismal performance in recent years.
One of the Twitteratis asked, “Do you really think he’s gunna buy? Or just talking rubbish.”
Referring to Tesla CEO’s legal battle over Twitter, another user took a shot at Musk and pointed at the deal that failed to materialise.
“You don’t want it man, trust me This man singed a deal to buy Twitter for USD 44 billion without doing any due dilligence then realized it was a bad deal. Backed out, and is being sued,” the user said.
Elon Musk is fighting Twitter in court over a rejected takeover proposal that Twitter is now attempting to push through.
The microblogging service and the world’s richest man are now on trial after Musk attempted to back out of his contract to buy Twitter due to what he claims is a misrepresentation of bogus accounts on the platform.
Twitter is attempting to persuade Musk to complete the transaction while accusing him of undermining it since it no longer served his interests.
