Manchester United is owned by the Glazer family, who also run the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

It was unclear whether the Tesla CEO was serious about his offer to buy the Premier League club.

Man Utd is one of the biggest sports teams in the world but has struggled in recent years.

They have not won the competition since 2013, and their fans have protested against the owners many times.

The club is still a commercial powerhouse and is valued at around £4 billion – barely $5 billion.

Musk tweeted Tuesday evening: “I also buy Manchester United, you are welcome.”

To add to the confusion, Musk’s tweet was a direct response to one of his posts about politics.

The first tweet read: “Just to be clear, I support the left half of the Republican Party and the right half of the Democratic Party!”

Musk, 51, faces a fiery legal battle against Twitter for dramatically pulling out of a $44 billion buyout.

It was a whirlwind couple of months for Musk and Twitter, when the billionaire decided to pull out of the deal in a dispute over fake account bots.

The entrepreneur believes that there are many more bots on Twitter than officials claim and accuses them of insufficient information to settle his purchase.

Unhappy with the slump, bosses have decided to take Musk to court.

Lawyers from both sides will face the Delaware Chancery Court, beginning Oct. 17 and running for five days.

The Twitter team had asked for the trial to begin as early as September to prevent Musk from further discrediting the company.

Musk wanted things to start in February 2023, claiming that a “warp speed” trial is an attempt to derail his argument that the platform is full of spam bots.
