Another day, another headline about Elon Musk attempting to acquire something.
In today’s news, Tesla’s Chief Executive Officer announced in nothing more than a “by the way” tweet that he will be buying the wildly popular British football club Manchester United.
"I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome," Musk said in a tweet. He did not give any follow-up details.
However, shortly after making headlines globally for his brazen tweet, Musk announced that it was a joke and that he would not be buying the football team.
“No, this is a long-running joke on Twitter. I’m not buying any sports teams,” he tweeted in response to an account asking if he was serious.
He added that if he were to buy a team though, it would be Manchester United as they were his favourite team as a child.
