I'd be more surprised if one of the tech giants wasn't interested in buying United. Most of them have had an interest in getting into the sport broadcasting game, with Amazon getting involved in Thursday night NFL matches and Apple doing MLB games. If any of the major streaming services could get their hands on exclusive content with a world wide reach, they would be more than willing to pay 5bn one time vs bidding billions for a rights package for x amount of years. Theoretically, they'd have a vested interest in maintaining a high quality product that will attract subscribers, which bodes well for squad investment.
I thought about this, then I thought nah that thats rubbish. Otherwise nobody would sponsor any teams.it will risk alienating customers from rival teams. 1bn people might be Utd fans in the world but 7bn are not

Nobody's not going to buy an Iphone just because Apple own Man Utd for example, or not fly Etihad
I agree there is a slim chance, but I wouldn't rule it out. I can see a benefit, especially the companies with TV stations.
The Glazers put the Red Devils on the market earlier this week, and the club isn't short of interest despite expectations it will cost billions of pounds to complete any form of deal and a takeover.www.dailymail.co.uk
