Apple Plan To Build Best Stadium In World If Tech Giants Complete Man Utd Deal

Manchester United might well be able to call their home ground the best stadium in the world should Apple make them the richest club on the planet with the Glazers looking to sell

Manchester United’s potential takeover by Apple could be followed by a stadium revamp that surpasses even Tottenham’s home as the Glazers look to sell.

Daily Star Sport exclusively revealed that Apple have expressed an interest in discussing a potential deal with United – and already have stadium plans.

Part of their bid to win over fans could include Apple funding the building of a new state-of-the-art stadium – that would be regarded the best in the world.

United’s Old Trafford has been their home since 1910, but the condition of the historic ground has been heavily criticised in recent years.

Gary Neville said of the Glazers on Sky Sports earlier this year: “They’ve still not dealt with the football operation; they’ve still not dealt with the player and recruitment department; they’ve still not dealt with the stadium which is rusting and needs massive money spent on it.

“Manchester United need a billion pounds in this next two-three years to either rebuild or renovate that stadium.”

Should Apple push forward with their plan to enter talks with United, it would bring the Red Devils one step closer to being the richest side on the planet.

As the largest tech company in the world with a revenue of almost £400 billion each year – Apple have an estimated net worth as of a stunning $2,406 billion.

That sum dwarfs that of the states behind Manchester City, Newcastle and PSG, which could aid United in getting back to winning ways in the Premier League.
