Glazer family stance on selling Man Utd after fan protests ‘hit home’ in Florida
Manchester United fans have made their feelings known over The Glazer family's ownership of the club, but it seems the American billionaires have little intention of selling.
Supporters stormed the pitch at Old Trafford on Sunday and forced the postponement of the Premier League match against Liverpool.
Fans are still incensed from the club's decision to enter into the European Super League, and want a change of ownership to be a byproduct of the fiasco.
However, according to reports, the Glazers have no intention of selling.
Fans blocked the entrance to the ground and prevented the team coach from leaving the Lowry Hotel as they made their feelings about the club known.
The Sun claims the fan protests 'hit home' with the Glazers, who are now eager to build bridges between themselves and the supporters.
The Glazers are yet to comment publicly on the protests, but co-owner Joel refused to apologise to fans when asked by Sky News on Tuesday.
And according to The Sun, the Glazers aren't willing to consider selling, but instead want to buy Harry Kane from Tottenham in a £90million deal in a desperate attempt to please the fanbase.

United fans remain furious with the Glazer family, and it seems likely there will be more protests at games in the future.
They wrote an open letter to the Glazer family earlier this week and vowed to boycott all club sponsors.
The open letter read: "Sixteen years ago Manchester United Football Club was debt-free. Today since the leveraged buy-out by the Glazer family £1.5bn has been removed from the club through dividend payments and share sales, with £840m of that servicing debt.
"As commercial partners of the Glazer family you are legitimate targets of the global fanbase because the combined £279m per annum you pay will not go towards investment in the squad to compete with the best clubs that United now trail.
"It will not go towards refurbishing Old Trafford or training facilities, both now so outdated that they have become a symbol for Glazer disinterest.
"Your sponsorship money will be used for debt servicing and dividends. Supporting the Glazers does not support the club. It sustains a parasitical relationship."
