The greedy American Glazer family will soon sell the world's most famous football club, according to a high up insider.

The non-executive director at Manchester United, Mike Edelson, has said: "It's no secret that, at some time, the family will sell."

Bids have already been put on the table before Glazers have even publicly stated they are selling.

The royal family of Qatar are not happy enough with hosting the 2022 World Cup, and now want to be the owners of United. The head of the bid, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani has offered a massive £1.5 billion for the club.

The Glazers have been hated by the fans ever since they took control of the team. They took out huge loans and piled up a mountain of debt for the giants.

So far they have only been able to pay back £252m of the £752m debt the dropped on United.

It may be good news for the fans to hear that United will be sold, but knowing that the American pair will leave with double their money will leave a bitter taste in the mouths of every red devil supporter.

After Qatar got the votes for 2022, they will want to expand their influence in the game across the world.
