Britain's Daily Star tabloid newspaper is reporting that Apple is considering paying $6.9 billion for the Premier League football team, Manchester United. It's one of the League's highest-profile teams, and is where David Beckham first came to fame.

According to the newspaper, the current owners are the Glazers, said to be US billionaires. Reportedly, the Glazers initially wanted $9.9 billion for the team, but have decided to sell to the highest bidder.

 

My thoughts

 This seems very un-apple, but perhaps this is akin to the Crypto.com Stadium scenario. Or just a move to drive publicity for their Ted Lasso series. Either way this would (by a long margin) make United the richest club in the world…

True, they are the top dog in phone business. They can survive even without any advertisement, apart from product launches.

Or probably they just have too much money and don't know what to do with it.

In contrast, Crypto.com need such exposure.

You’re citing a literal tabloid as a news source. Apple sources have already debunked this as false.

Just because tech company does something doesn't make it tech topic. This is about business decisions and sports overall.
