The richest man in the world, Elon Musk, tweeted on Tuesday that his purchasing Manchester United Plc, but provided no other information.

Despite Musk’s reputation for originality, it was unclear whether he intended to pursue a deal to secure Manchester United given his history of unusual behaviour and wacky tweets.

I’m buying Manchester United your welcome, Musk tweeted. The American Glazer family owns and operates the franchise. When asked for comment, neither Musk nor his relatives got back to reporters right away.

The Glazers allegedly indicated last year in an article by a British publication, the Daily Mirror, that they would sell the club for more than 4 billion pounds.

Approximately 4.84 billion dollars.

Musk has been sued by the social media giant after he attempted to back out of a $44 billion deal to buy the company.

Man Utd has one of the most devoted fan bases of any professional football team. They hold the English record with 20 league titles and have won the European Cup three times, the sport’s most prestigious club tournament, making them global heavyweights.

After finishing sixth in the English Premier League last season, while Manchester City won their second consecutive title, fans’ dissatisfaction with the Glazers’ apparent lack of ambition to bring in quality players further grew.

As of Tuesday’s stock market close, the value of the football team was $2.08 billion.

Due to the team’s poor performance on the field since the Glazers purchased Manchester United in 2005 for 790 million pounds ($955.51 million), supporters have taken to the streets in recent years to voice their displeasure with the new owners.

After United’s involvement in an unsuccessful attempt to launch a breakaway European Super League last year, the anti-Glazer movement gained pace.

Others have suggested that Musk acquire Manchester United instead of Twitter.

Elon Musk is known to act and speak in unique ways, making it difficult to determine whether he is kidding.

In pursuit of his goals, which include colonising Mars and establishing a new sustainable energy economy, he has established a number of companies, including electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla, rocket business SpaceX, and a number of smaller enterprises. The Boring Company is one such tunnelling enterprise.

Musk has battled U.S. regulators over his comments about his plans for Tesla, including an abandoned attempt to take it private, and has seemed to consume marijuana in a podcast.

It has been reported that his wealth is $270 billion, according to Forbes. To buy one pound for $1.00, you would need to spend $0.8268.
