According to it, Apple was planning to spend about $7 billion US dollars to acquire Manchester United.
After these rumors MacRumors contacted multiple people familiar with the matter believing that this report was wrong and untrue.
The Premier League club Manchester United has been majority owned by the Glazer family since 2005. The club announced on Tuesday that its board plans to “explore strategic options”, one of which is to sell the club.
The news came on the same day that Manchester United announced the star player Cristiano Ronaldo was leaving the club.
