JUST IN: Apple Proposes $5.8bn To Acquire Manchester United


Apple, the US tech behemoth, is reportedly interested in acquiring Manchester United.

United announced earlier this week that they were ready to begin accepting offers for the club's sale, according to a statement on the club's website.

With United now for sale, the Daily Star UK claims that the world's largest technology company may be interested in acquiring the club for £5.8 billion.

The California-based tech company has never previously owned a major sports team, but the commercial opportunities offered by United are said to be a driving factor in their interest.
