Notorious League? Conor McGregor suggests he may buy Manchester United football club

Is Conor McGregor positioning himself to buy one of the biggest soccer teams in the world?

It certainly seems like a stretch that McGregor could become an owner of the infamous Manchester United club, given his less than impressive results in the cage lately and his many public black eyes. But, behind the scenes McGregor has continued to bank huge amounts of money these past few years, much of it from his extremely popular Proper 12 whiskey brand.

Just last month, reports came out that McGregor had sold Proper 12 to Becle, the spirits conglomerate that owns Jose Cuervo tequila, Bushmills whiskey, and Kraken rum. That deal may have doubled his already sizable net worth, getting him close to a net worth of around a half billion dollars.

So when “The Notorious” claims he’s going to buy Manchester United, we assume he’s just talking tosh. But a small part of us still wonders if something’s going on in the background.

Forbes has estimated that Manchester United is valued at $4.2 billion, so McGregor wouldn’t be able to buy Manchester United outright. But as part of some business consortium?

Then there’s the fact that the Red Devils are in the middle of a decent amount of flux as Man U is pushing for a new European Super League takeover and its chairman, Ed Woodward, is stepping down. With the European Super League already on the verge of collapsing because of a fan revolt and founding teams pulling out, maybe there is room for a chunk of Manchester United ownership stock to be sold.

Even as rich as he is, McGregor better have some filthy rich “yacht inside their yacht” friends for this to happen. Even his billionaire buddies the Fertitta brothers have been unable to buy their own major league sports team ... and they’ve actually got the billions needed in their bank accounts to make a move.


I'm thinking about buying Apple

And you didn't need to tweet about it

He craves attention, it’s a drug to him.

No, you're thinking of cocaine

Drugs are a drug to him.

Hey guys, I'm thinking about marrying Brookilyn Wren

What do you think?

Get in line.....

I think Justin wren is available if you’re interested

Also You’ll have to get sloppy seconds after Bruce

From the look of that grin Bruce has

I think he has something planned for those thumbs.

Look-a-like 1st place at the 2021 Fonzie-con?

There is a lesson here...

No matter how rich ppl are – a lot of them still want what they cant get.

WTF is wrong with people.

It’s called ambition

It’s a sad life if someone doesn’t aim to achieve what is beyond their grasp

That is ridiculous.

It’s why he’s got half a billion

While we’re still using "two can dine" coupons at McDonald’s. he conceives, believes and tweets about achieving

Then he achieves.

Not a fan of Conor but he’s done a few things right. Like renting props for his image.

Smart man. Everyone knows cars lose half their value as soon as you get in them and turn the key

Keep them box fresh by standing or sitting on them instead

Except the ultra exotics aren’t the same as your Honda Civic

Many are worth quite a lot over msrp because not everyone has the privilege of buying them direct from the manufacturer. Ferrari’s are notorious for this. The top dollar Ferrari’s aren’t available to people who aren’t long term Ferrari owners so some sell for well over original sticker even on the used market.

Well that’s because regular cars are just cars

The fancy cars are penis compensators and the folk who pay top dollar for those increase the perceived size of their tiny penises the more they pay for them. That’s why they keep and even increase their value

Are there any men on planet Earth with regular sized or above average sized penises who enjoy nice cars?

Because if there is even one, your whole theory proves your extreme retardation.

Ron Jeremy drives a Saturn FWIW

At least he did until it got impounded.

No jokes about Saturn being next to Uranus…

So are you saying he is well hung?

I think the world is kinda aware what the hedgehog is packing at this point
