Manchester United’s owners could find themselves on a collision course with fans this week over a proposed multi-million dollar share sale.

The Glazer family have confirmed their intention to sell 9.5 million Manchester United shares on the New York Stock Exchange at an estimated value of £137m.

The decision comes as part of a long-term strategy to sell blocks of shares but the club will receive no direct proceeds from the sale.

The Glazers decision to sell £70m worth of shares back in March, combined with their move to join the European Super League, sparked massive anger amongst fans.

The latest move is set to put the Glazers back in trouble with United fans ahead of their return to action next weekend.
