The fake takeover of English football club Manchester United by Elon Musk himself, announced on Twitter, has broken the Internet. However, it was just another joke from the facetious boss of Tesla…
Elon Musk is a rascal. An adult with the mischievous spirit of a child, who loves provocation, sometimes in the name of humor, often in the name of… nothing at all. Latest example, with a tweet in which the boss of Tesla wrote this week bluntly: “By the way, I’m buying Manchester United. You’re welcome. ” It was enough to panic the blue bird network (more than 500,000 likes of this post in a few hours) and panicked the financial markets, overexcited at the disclosure of such information from one of the men the richest on the planet and who already, in recent months, announced the acquisition, ultimately aborted, of Twitter!
Also, I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome

But no, in the end it was onlyyet another snub from the American billionaire who, a few hours later, announced, still on his personal Twitter account: “It’s a joke. I’m not going to buy any sports team.” While adding, sowing a final disorder: “Nevertheless, if there was a team to buy it would be Man United. It was my favorite team when I was a child.” Manchester United club players, currently in turmoil with a disastrous start to the Premier League season in particular, will therefore not drive a Tesla for free…
