So Manchester United have insisted that the club is not for sale following reports that the Qatar royal family plan to make an offer of around £1.5bn to buy out the Glazer family, who have been the owners since 2005.
A statement published with its quarterly results said: “The board notes recent press speculation regarding a possible bid for Manchester United. The owners remain fully committed to their long-term ownership of the club. No discussions have taken place, Manchester United is not for sale and the owners will not entertain any offers.”
Oh to be in their position I hear many small businesses cry, instead they are left to try and make a living with rising overheads and a recessionary market, in many cases. For a lot of businesses survival is their only recourse at the moment as the only people that might be interested in purchasing thei company is a vulture keen on stripping the profitable elements and dumping the rest.
Fortunately UK business owners tend to be more resilient and resourceful, but sometimes they need a hand especially when it comes to saving money on their business energy bills. This is where independent price comparison sites like energyadviceline.org.uk come in, they are there to provide free advice on checking rates for business gas and business electricity and helping companies switch to a more economic supplier.
So if you haven’t had a recent offer from some Middle East Royal Family for your company perhaps you should give the Energy Advice Line a call on 0800 915 1800 the call and the advice is free and they could save you more than the price of a ticket to the next Manchester United game at least!
