Manchester United owners, the Glazer family, could finally sell the club after 17 years in charge.

Sources have claimed investment bankers were being instructed to advise on the process, which is likely to include a full or partial sale, or strategic partnership with third parties.

Manchester United’s share price immediately rose by 17% as a result, adding almost $400m to the club’s market capitalisation, according to football finance expert Kieran Maguire.

This news comes on the same day the club terminated Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract.
