As shared by The Guardian, Manchester United is one of the biggest football clubs in the world. If the tweets were true, Elon Musk would have to cough up at least $2 billion as is the club’s current stock market evaluation.
Right now, it is not clear whether Elon Musk will be going through with buying Twitter as the business owner previously met up with Twitter executives to execute the deal for $44 billion.
