In a press release through their website, Joel Glazer responded to the fans demands of selling Man United amid all the protest and pressure. 

Joel Glazer is the more involved brother out of the family that has a majority stake holding at Man United. The English side has been successful with the current owners in the past and they don’t seem like they want to go away. Even if the supporters kept on protesting trying to kick them out, it appears the Glazers aren’t going anywhere. Avram Glazer is the one who seems the least interested in responding to the supporters’ pleas but his brother is worried about the state of the club.

As you might’ve imagined, Joel Glazer has no intention of selling the club to any possible suitor. He plans to continue taking hundreds of millions from the institution while still trying to make the team succeed. Getting to the upcoming Europa League final was a major step in the right direction for his family’s interest in keeping the club. Chances are they might even win the title when the season is over. 

Joel Glazer’s press release about the club. 

Man United’s website published the following statement from Joal Glazer: “We have supported sustained investment in the team over many years, and that will continue this summer. We recognise that we will need to significantly increase investment in Old Trafford and our training complex to ensure that the club’s facilities remain among the best in Europe. I am personally committed to ensuring that we strengthen this relationship in future. I want to reassure you that my family and I care deeply about Manchester United and feel a profound sense of responsibility to protect and enhance its strength for the long-term, while respecting its values and traditions.

“Our top priority is, and will always be, competing for the most important trophies, playing entertaining football with a team comprised of top-quality recruits and some of the world’s best homegrown talent. Under Ole, we feel we are absolutely on the right track. These commitments are a starting point for further dialogue, including all the specific points you raised, rather than final proposals. We want to work together to come up with an ambitious package of measures which will transform our relationship with fans and strengthen the club for the long-term. In this spirit, we will reach out to members of the forum to schedule a meeting in which I shall participate as soon as possible after the final game of the season.”
