The eccentric chief executive of Tesla and SpaceX made the surprise news late Tuesday night via Twitter.
He said: “I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome.”
The 51-year-old billionaire is presently engaged in a heated legal dispute with Twitter for abruptly abandoning the $44 billion purchase. In addition to being wealthy he has been criticized as someone who doesn’t give as much back as he takes from others including taxpayers. This makes sense since most billionaires really live in their own little bubble and rarely interact with the general public or their employees let alone which they are criticized.
It’s unusual for a person to be a fan of both Tesla and SpaceX and Manchester United, but this is Elon Musk, who seems to have accomplished a lot of things that would be considered unusual, even impossible.
