Ahead of Manchester United's Premier League clash against Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Sunday, fans held a huge protest against the Glazers outside the stadium and demanded the full sale of the club with chants of "We want Glazers out," and "full sale only."
In an attempt to send a message to the American billionaires, Man United fans were looking to boycott the league match against Aston Villa until the 18th minute inside the stadium. However, the fans placed anti-Glazers flags and banners at every corner of the stadium.
The American owners have been in charge of the English club since 2005 and if rumours are to be believed, United owners are likely to remain in control after targeting a partial sale of the club, which triggered the fans, who want a full sale of the Red Devils.

Qatar banker Sheikh Jassim and England's richest man Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s Ineos Group, who have lodged their respective bids, are the frontrunners to buy the club. The Glazers own 69 per cent of the United shares. The Man United fans have been holding the protest for the club's sale for quite a long time now and their most immoderate disapproval took place in 2021 during Man United's clash against Liverpool at the Old Trafford.
During the match against Liverpool in 2021, a large group of fans demonstrated before the match and created chaos on the pitch and in the changing rooms, which saw the match getting postponed for the first time in the Premier League because of fan protests.
