Apple on purchasing Manchester United is fake news | TechNave

A few hours ago, there was a report by The Daily Star saying that Apple may be purchasing Manchester United Football Club for around $7 billion. The news broke out shortly after Cristiano Ronaldo announced upon leaving the club soon, but the acquisition rumour turns out to be false. 

According to a source that is familiar with the situation, Apple has no plans at all to acquire the popular football club. While it’s true that the board of the club announced they are keen to “explore strategic alternatives”, including the sale of the club, nothing is definite yet. Also, Manchester United is owned by the Glazer family as the majority since 2005. 

On Apple’s side, the company has been seen pushing sports content on its Apple TV+. Recently, Major League Baseball can now be watched live on a weekly basis, as well as Apple is the exclusive provider of Major League Soccer for the next 10 years starting in 2023.
