American owners of Manchester United, the Glazer family have placed a staggering sum of £4billion to sell the club.
According to a report by the Mirror, the American owners have put that asking price on the Premier League club they bought for £790million in 2005.
It is the figure the Glazers believe would have been realized if the doomed European Super League project had gone ahead.
Throughout their unpopular 16-year ownership, the Florida-based family has always insisted they are in United for the long haul and have shown no desire to sell the club.
They have instead taken annual dividends amounting to millions while the debt stayed high.
But city investors believe a bid close to their £4billion asking price would tempt brothers Joel and Avram, who effectively run the club, to relinquish control.
The Glazers believe that United, despite their lack of league titles in recent years, are worthy of such a substantial asking price because of their rich and proud history. As well as that, the club is still seen as one of the very biggest in the world and is capable of attracting big-name and big-money sponsorship deals.
