Glazers Open to Selling Minority Stake in Manchester United

Manchester United FC’s owners are considering opening up the iconic English football club to a new investor -- with private equity firms likely to be crowding the field alongside high-net worth individuals. 

Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday that the Glazer family may sell a minority stake in the English Premier League team. It’s the first sign the Americans are willing to cede some control at the club they have owned outright since 2005.
