The Irish fighter was asked about the subject by one of his followers
Conor McGregor could embark on an adventure in the soccer world. The fighter, who is preparing to return to Octagon on July 10, in a new fight with Dustin Boerer, said on social media that he wanted to buy a club and put Manchester United on the list.
The Irishman, whose wealth is estimated at 181 million pounds (209 million euros), wrote a message on Twitter that put his followers – and admirers of the Red Devils – on alert. “Hello everyone! I’m thinking of buying Manchester United! What do you think?” Did the feedback take long and there was a fan asking the question directly? “Are you really going to buy Manchester United?”
Here is the fighter’s response: “First, there was a conversation with Celtic, to be honest. Get a percentage of Dermot Desmond. I’m really interested in buying a team! I love Celtic and Manchester United. Mind. I can do great things for the club.”
Desmond is an Irish businessman with a net worth of nearly € 2 billion, according to Forbes magazine, and he is Celtic’s largest shareholder. He held Manchester United shares until 2005, the year Malcolm Glazer sold them.
