The Premier League football club has been put up for sale by its owners, the Glazer family, potentially sparking a bidding war among some of the world's richest people.

Reports have emerged today in the Daily Star suggesting that Apple, the technology company with an annual turnover of 326billion, could lodge a bid to takeover the club.

Supporters of the Red Devils have been reacting with glee at the news, which if it comes to pass, would see it become by far the richest club in England.

Some have been joking that given Apple's huge income from its technology business they could afford to update the clubs notoriously uncared for ground Old Trafford 'every two months'.

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

Any potential deal would almost certainly become the most costly acquisition of a football club in history, surpassing the 4.25billion fee a consortium led by Todd Boehly paid for Chelsea earlier this year.
