Elon Musk Eyes Manchester United Purchase

Outspoken multibillionaire Elon Musk said on Tuesday he was looking to buy Manchester United. The English Premier League (EPL) fans thought it was a relatively good idea. Until the SpaceX and Tesla founder later said it was only a joke.

Musk made his announcement on Twitter, telling his more than 103 million followers the good news. Quickly, the message became a global trend, receiving 755,400 likes, more than 112,600 retweets and about 22,000 comments at press time.

The reaction was mixed, as expected among a polarized fan group. However, when Musk dismissed the idea, any elation turned into frustration.

Man U Off To a Slow Start

The EPL season is now underway, and Man U isn’t getting off on the right foot. The team lost its first game against Brighton before following up with a 4-0 shutout to Brentford. As a result, when Musk chimed in with his purchase, some fans enthusiastically supported the news.

It took Musk five hours to break the news that he was not serious about buying the team. He added to his Twitter thread and explained that it was just a “running joke.” However, he pointed out that if he were to buy a team, it would be Man U. He called it his “favorite team as a kid.”

Man U, which recently tapped Betfred as its official sports betting partner, has big talent on the team. Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcus Rashford, and others line the field. But the team still hasn’t been able to win since last May.(…)
