Earlier this week, United announced the news that the one of the world’s biggest football clubs, is effectively for sale in a statement issued.
According to a report from the Daily Star, the world’s largest tech company, Apple, may be interested in acquiring the club for £5.8billion.
The California-based tech firm has never previously owned a major sports team, but the commercial opportunities provided by United are said to be a primary factor in their interest.
CEO Cook is just the latest in a line of high-profile individuals who have shown an interest in taking charge at Old Trafford.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk has also expressed interest in taking over the club.
