Football legend and former Manchester United player David Beckham as well as US tech giant Apple are both interested in purchasing English club Manchester United after The Glazers put it up for sale.
Reports began to emerge of Apple expressing interest in purchasing what is considered the world’s biggest football club for £5.8 billion while Beckham is also reportedly open to engaging in talks with United.
The Manchester United legend and cultural icon is reportedly unable of buying the club on his own but may form part of a larger investment consortium which would come together to strengthen their bid for the Red Devils.
