Best tweets as Musk jokes about buying Man Utd

Hilarious memes flood Twitter as world's richest man Elon Musk jokes about buying Man Utd

August 17, 2022 By Ali M.
The infamous billionaire joked about buying the struggling Red Devils, sending Twitter into mayhem as a result.

Given the chaos going on at Manchester United, calls for the Glazers to leave the Red Devils have hit an all-time high. The club's American owners have overseen the demise of one of Europe's biggest teams, with their recent 4-0 defeat away to Brentford being the final straw for many supporters.

However, with the 20-time English being valued at over $4 billion by Forbes, the only way out of this current ownership is if the Glazers were to put the club up for sale, and at that price point, not many can afford to buy them out.

As a result, a recent tweet made by the infamous billionaire Elon Musk sparked mayhem on social media. The 51-year-old CEO of Tesla and SpaceX took to social media to flirt with the idea of buying the Premier League giants, writing "Also, I'm buying Manchester United, you're welcome" in a follow-up to a previous tweet regarding his political alignment.

Musk is known for trolling on social media, and while some took this tweet with a pinch of salt, others could not help but go into overdrive. This sparked several jokes and memes on Twitter poking fun at what could unfold should Elon usurp the Glazers as the owners at Old Trafford. Here are the best tweets.

Anyone excited over the idea of Musk taking over Manchester United will be disappointed, however, as the billionaire later admitted he was simply joking when asked by another Twitter user.

Nonetheless, this prank will once again shine the spotlight on the Glazers and their poor ownership of England's most iconic team. Ten Hag's side currently sit dead bottom in the table, having conceded six goals whilst failing to score on their own – the only goal they've registered so far was a Brighton own goal.

Next up for Cristiano and Co. is an interesting showdown with Liverpool, who, despite their shaky start to the Premier League season, are one of the favorites for the title. Things could get a lot worse for the Red Devils should they suffer another embarrassing home defeat to the Merseyside giants.
