Conor McGregor ‘Weighs’ Buying Manchester United Amid ESL Drama, Twitter Howls With Laughter

The glorious British football club is torn by controversy amid a scandalous newly-proposed idea to establish a European Super League (ESL). The project purportedly envisaged helping the European football system overcome the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, but no specific details have been provided by the initiators.

Irish UFC star, featherweight and lightweight champion, Conor McGregor, on Tuesday tweeted that he is “thinking about buying Manchester United” football club, asking followers their opinion.

McGregor’s tweet followed reports that were later confirmed by official statements that Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward had resigned amid the unfolding drama of the recently proposed creation of a European Super League.

Amused netizens immediately reacted to the tweet, with some approving the idea and others suggesting he would be better off if he would “buy Liverpool.”

Some twittarians noted that McGregor does not have enough money, noting that the UFC legend “needs about 8 more fights with Mayweather before that would commence.”
