Washington:

After his failed bid on Twitter that left the Tesla CEO in an uphill legal battle, Elon Musk today said he was buying English football club Manchester United.

“To be clear, I support the left half of the Republican Party and the right half of the Democratic Party,” he tweeted. And shortly after that tweet, he said: “Also I’m buying Manchester United, you’re welcome.”

You can never know how serious Musk is when it comes to his tweets, but the hint at the news has Manchester United buzzing.

Manchester United fans have called for the exit of the current American Glazer ownership family due to the club’s poor performance in recent years.

Musk’s tweet, which was posted not too long ago, garnered a huge response.

One of the Twitter users asked, “Do you really think he’s going to buy? Or is he just talking nonsense.”

Referring to the Tesla CEO’s legal battle on Twitter, another user shot Musk and pointed to the deal that didn’t materialize.

“You don’t want it, man, believe me. This man signed a deal to buy Twitter for $44 billion without doing any due diligence, then realized it was a bad deal. He backed off and is being chased,” the user said.

Elon Musk is locked in a legal battle with Twitter over a failed takeover bid that Twitter now intends to force through.

The microblogging website and the world’s richest man is now heading for trial after Musk sought to abandon his deal to acquire Twitter over what he says was a misrepresentation of fake accounts on the site.

Twitter is trying to coerce Musk into following through on the deal while accusing him of sabotaging it because it no longer served their interests.
