曼聯老闆尋求出售俱樂部的全部或部分股權

最後更新日期:.From section Man Utd

曼聯的老闆格雷澤家族說,他們正在考慮出售俱樂部,因為他們 "探索戰略選擇"。

這是在球迷對他們的所有權進行了多年抗議之後發生的。

一份聲明說,董事會將 "考慮所有的戰略選擇,包括對俱樂部的新投資、出售或涉及本公司的其他交易"。

2012年,格萊澤家族通過股票上市出售了10%的控股權,並在隨後的幾年裡進一步出售股份。

"在我們尋求繼續建立俱樂部的成功歷史時,董事會已經授權對戰略選擇進行徹底的評估,"執行聯合主席和董事阿夫拉姆-格雷澤和喬爾-格雷澤說。

"我們將評估所有的選擇,以確保我們最好地服務於我們的球迷,並確保曼聯最大限度地利用俱樂部今天和未來的重大增長機會。

"在整個過程中,我們將繼續完全專注於為我們的球迷、股東和各種利益相關者的最佳利益服務。"

在英超聯賽中排名第五的曼聯,自2013年以來沒有贏得過冠軍,而且自2017年獲得歐洲聯賽和EFL杯以來,還沒有贏得過獎盃。

近年來,有多起針對格雷澤家族所有權的抗議活動,包括2021年5月的一次抗議,導致曼聯主場對陣利物浦的聯賽被推遲。

本賽季8月,數千名支持者在同一場比賽前到老特拉福德遊行抗議。

曼聯是失敗的歐洲超級聯賽項目的一部分,該項目在2021年4月迅速瓦解。曼聯聯合主席喬爾-格雷澤後來為造成的動盪道歉。

此後,他出席了支持者騷亂後的球迷論壇,並承諾向球迷提供股份。

葡萄牙隊長克里斯蒂亞諾-羅納爾多於周二離開曼聯並立即生效,他在上周一次有爭議的採訪中批評了俱樂部的所有權,稱格雷澤家族在體育方面 "不關心俱樂部"。

出售曼聯的舉動發生在利物浦主席湯姆-維爾納說芬威體育集團正在 "探索出售 "安菲爾德俱樂部的時候。

彭博社2022年8月的一份報告稱,格雷澤家族願意出售俱樂部的少數股權。

英國億萬富翁吉姆-拉特克利夫爵士說他有興趣購買該俱樂部,然後他在10月表示,格雷澤家族告訴他他們不想出售。

5月,由美國投資者托德-波利和私募股權公司Clearlake Capital領導的財團以42.5億英鎊的價格收購了切爾西。

Manchester United's owners the Glazer family say they are considering selling the club as they "explore strategic alternatives".

It comes after years of protest from fans against their ownership.

A statement said the board will "consider all strategic alternatives, including new investment into the club, a sale, or other transactions involving the Company."

In 2012, the Glazers sold 10% of their holding via a stock listing and have sold further shares in the following years.

"As we seek to continue building on the club's history of success, the board has authorised a thorough evaluation of strategic alternatives," said executive co-chairmen and directors Avram Glazer and Joel Glazer.

"We will evaluate all options to ensure that we best serve our fans and that Manchester United maximizes the significant growth opportunities available to the club today and in the future.

"Throughout this process we will remain fully focused on serving the best interests of our fans, shareholders, and various stakeholders."

United, who are fifth in the Premier League, have not won the title since 2013 and have not won a trophy since claiming the Europa League and EFL Cup in 2017.

There have been multiple protests against the Glazers' ownership in recent years, including one in May 2021 which caused United's home league match against Liverpool to be postponed.

Thousands of supporters marched to Old Trafford in protest before the same fixture this season, in August.

United were part of the failed European Super League project which rapidly collapsed in April 2021. Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer later apologised for the unrest caused.

He has since attended Fans' Forums in the wake of the supporter unrest and pledged to make shares available to fans.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo, who left Manchester United with immediate effect on Tuesday, criticised the club ownership in a controversial interview last week saying the Glazer family, "don't care about the club" on the sporting side.

The move to sell United comes amid Liverpool chairman Tom Werner saying Fenway Sports Group were "exploring a sale" of the Anfield club.

A Bloomberg report in August 2022 said that the Glazer family were willing to sell a minority stake in the club.

British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe said he would be interested in buying the club before he stated in October that the Glazer family had told him they did not want to sell.

In May, a consortium led by American investor Todd Boehly and private equity firm Clearlake Capital bought Chelsea for £4.25bn. • None All the latest Manchester United news, analysis and fan views in one place • None You can now get Man Utd news notifications in the BBC Sport app - find out more • None Podcast: The Devils' Advocate - listen to the latest episode on BBC Sounds • None Our coverage of Manchester United is bigger and better than ever before - here's everything you need to know to make sure you never miss a moment • None Everything United - go straight to all the best content
