Glazer wins control of Man United

US sports tycoon Malcolm Glazer has won control of Manchester United in a 790m ($1.47bn) takeover bid.

The American has secured the 28.7% stake owned by Irish racing tycoons JP McManus and John Magnier, and now has more than 70% of the Premiership club.

NOOOOO.......... The one thing is didnt want to happen... Im hoping he does ge tthat 75% or 90% plus one share. If he gets 75% plus one share he can put his debts on the club..... SO SAD....

Manchester United fans are angry at the latest news.

So am I.

"We feel completely betrayed by John Magnier and JP McManus."

So do I...

Effectively Man United will turn from one of the most financially sound clubs to a debt-ridden club.

Well the worst has happened. Glazer has over 75% of the team. He now has complete freedom of the club.

He is already planning to raise prices. In America this is a normal occurance. I dont think it is in Europe.
