Earlier, as per a story published in The Times of India, one of the most popular and successful football clubs – Manchester United’s owners Glazers family have shown ‘interest’ to buy one among the two new IPL teams. It is believed that this could be a reason behind an extension in the purchasing tender date by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

“So, technically, overseas investors are eligible to submit a bid if they meet these conditions. We don’t really know whether Man U owners will come to the bidding table. What we certainly know is that they’ve shown interest,” a TOI report quoted sources as saying.
