Plane flies 'Glazers Out' banner over NFL clash as Man Utd fan protest hits the US amid takeover uncertainty | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED supporters have taken their “Glazers Out” protests Stateside in their latest stand against the club’s owners.

A huge banner calling for them to leave the Red Devils was flown across the Raymond James Stadium in Florida last night as the NFL team they also own were in action.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were in action against the Philadelphia Eagles last night when the aircraft incident occurred.

Before the Monday Night Football game got underway, a plane flew across the sky with a huge banner that read “Glazers Out” in the latest move in a series of protests.

It was United Pittsburgh and Tampa supporters groups that organised the banner, and after footage went viral, they have been hailed by fellow fans of United online.

“Fantastic work,” declared one as another said on X: “We need more.”

And another asked: “Can we start to organise this as a regular occurrence?”

United fans are desperate to try and push the Americans to sell the club amid the frustration and confusion over the long-running sale.

The future of the United ownership still remains unclear after several months of speculation and deadlines after the Glazers had invited bids for the Old Trafford club.

We reported last month how Sheikh Jassim was set to complete his full £6BILLION takeover of United by mid-October.

The Qatari royal appears to have fought off rival bidder British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who was willing to allow the Glazer family to retain a stake in the Red Devils.

A date has been pencilled in and an announcement could come as early as next month with Sheikh Jassim’s team completing their due diligence on the club before they end the 18-year reign of the loathed Glazers.

However, a report from The Mail on Sunday recently claimed that the Glazers were set to take United off the market as the bids received were way short of their valuation.

That state the Americans were considering waiting until 2025 to sell the club as they believe they could get a whopping £10bn then.

However, we understand that neither Sheikh Jassim nor Ratcliffe has been informed of any change and the process is still currently ongoing.

The original sale process began in November but now fed-up fans are fuming over the lack of information coming from both United and the Glazers, who have not put a pound of their own into the club since taking charge in 2005.

Now fears are mountong that they will remain at the helm.

And the ownership issue is not the only one rocking the club over recent weeks amid a mixed start to the new campaign on the pitch.

We reported how a host of United stars have “urged Jadon Sancho to say sorry and end his feud” with Erik ten Hag.

The row erupted on September 3 when Ten Hag accused Sancho of not training well enough to warrant a place in United's matchday squad to face Arsenal on September 3.

Sancho instantly hit back on social media, describing himself as a “scapegoat and essentially calling his manager a liar.

The ex-Dortmund ace has not featured for the club since and was banished from first-team training under Ten Hag's ruthless stance – with some team-mates disagreeing with the Dutchman's call.

Meanwhile, fellow attacker Antony has taken time away after being accused of domestic violence, an allegation that he denies.
