After Twitter, Tesla CEO Elon Musk says he is buying Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United

Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said on Tuesday (August 16) that he was buying football club Manchester United.

“I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome,” Musk said in a tweet.

Manchester United is one of the world’s best supported football clubs.

They have been champions of England a record 20 times and have won the European Cup,

the most prestigious club competition in the global game, three times.

The team, featuring top striker Cristiano Ronaldo, is controlled by the American Glazer family,

who did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The football club had a market capitalization of $2.08 billion, as of Tuesday's stock market close.

Some fans have urged Musk to buy Manchester United instead of buying Twitter.

Musk is trying to exit a $44 billion agreement to buy the social media company, which has taken him to court.
