- They haven’t won the league since 2013 and their fans have protested many times against the owners.

The football club had a market capitalization of $2.08 billion, as of Tuesday’s close. Manchester United fans have in recent years protested against the Glazers, who bought the club for 790 million pounds ($955.51 million) in 2005, due to the team’s struggles on the pitch.
The anti-Glazer movement gained momentum last year after United were involved in a failed attempt to form a breakaway European Super League.
