Tesla CEO Elon Musk posted a tweet on Twitter saying he would buy Manchester United, before denying it a bit later, emphasizing it was just a joke.

In the tweet posted Tuesday night, the world’s richest man, according to (Forbes) magazine, said: “I’ll also buy Manchester United. You’re welcome.”

Shortly after, he responded to a user who asked him how serious this was, saying, “No, this is a long running joke on Twitter. I will not buy any sports equipment.”

It is noteworthy that the (Twitter) board approved Musk’s offer to acquire the network at the end of last April for $44 billion, before the businessman retracted the entire process, which opened the door to a legal battle between the two. parties.
