Paul Scholes, a former player for Manchester United and England, expects that the sale of his old team would end years of unhappiness among the supporters.
After 18 years, the Old Trafford giants are up for sale, and the Glazer family is in negotiations with a number of interested parties.
And while the former midfielder is not particular about who leads the Red Devils, he is hoping that it will help to diffuse the recent hostility toward the American family.
Despite the improvement in form under Erik ten Hag this season, protests have been frequent under the present ownership.
On the potential sale, Scholes said: “I hope it’s something that gets sorted soon, If the ownership is a done deal in a couple of months that will hopefully help the manager and maybe bring more funds.
“Although I don’t think any manager has been left short by the owners we have now, I think the club are ready for a change. It’s pretty obvious the fans are ready.
“Of course the last thing you want is protests around the ground. As soon as the new owners come in, if it ever does happen, all that will stop and hopefully we can move forward.
“I don’t care who is running the club as long as what is happening on the field is right.”
