Don’t sell Manchester United to the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia

Please don’t sell Manchester United to the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia

Why is this important?

Crown Prince Mohammad, the second most powerful person in Saudi Arabia, is considering buying Manchester United.

Right now, the Prince is coming under fire after a journalist who was critical of him "disappeared". The journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, went missing from the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago. Saudi Arabia is currently denying any involvement but countries around the world are calling for an investigation. The Prince shouldn't be allowed to buy the club while there's such a serious allegation hanging over his head.

Manchester United belongs to its fans and players. It is the most successful club in England’s history and has produced stars such as George Best and Ryan Giggs. It shouldn’t be owned by rich rulers who just want to use it to boost their reputation.
