The Glazers want an incredible £4billion from any potential buyers if they are to sell Manchester United in the future.

The American owners have been largely unpopular since buying the Red Devils for £790m back in 2005, and their latest plans to become a founding member of the controversial European Super League have left supporters demanding for them to pack their bags.

And according to The Mirror, the Glazers would be willing to listen to their fans on this occasion and sell the club - but only for the right price.

Brothers Joel and Avram are only prepared to accept takeover bids of a whopping £4bn to sell Man Utd, a figure they believe would have been generated by the sanctioning of the European Super League.

They also believe that Man Utd's unique position as one of the biggest and most recognisable football clubs in the world justifies such a price tag, as well as their commercial success, which has seen them land some major sponsorship deals over the years.

The Glazers believed that the ESL was the next step in the Red Devils' evolution, and would serve as a model to create even more money, while they continued to take dividends out of Old Trafford and leave the club's debts high.

The fans' rebellion left owners all around Europe with little choice other than to back down from their audacious plans, but the feeling of betrayal has caused an irreparable schism between supporters and their hierarchy.

And the fanbase is set to show their rage against the Glazers on Sunday afternoon, when Man Utd travel to Yorkshire to take on Leeds United. Alex Crook of talkSPORT has reported that supporters have organised a plane to fly over Elland Road in protest against their owners, as they look to regain control of their football club.
