Back in 1989 Michael Knighton famously bought Manchester United and then ripped up the contract for a place on the board. His visionary blueprint transformed MUFC from a Football Club struggling financially into a commercial powerhouse.
Now he wants to lead the campaign to rescue the world’s most popular football club from their American owners.
Knighton is actively talking to potential investors with the aim of being the catalyst that brings together a consortium to buy control from the Glazers.
He’s urging Britain’s richest man Sir Jim Ratcliffe to switch his bid to buy a Premier League club from Chelsea to Manchester United. But he says he’s also talking to other billionaires. And he explains why and how he believes the Glazers will be persuaded to sell.
Filmmaker John Gubba has spent the last 2 years convincing Knighton that he should get involved and here he presents this exclusive interview.
