THE Glazers will accept no less than £4BILLION to sell Manchester United, according to reports.
Hundreds of United fans protested against the unpopular Americans on Saturday after their prominent involvement in plans to ruin football with the European Super League.
It follows demonstrations at Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham over their backers’ attempts to join the doomed renegade closed-shop franchise league.
Ed Woodward has already quit United amid the Super League crisis.
Sun Sport understands the Man Utd bigwig left the club on Monday BEFORE Chelsea and Manchester City pulled out of the hated competition.
But it will take more than fan protests – where Red Devils fans burned American flags – to get the Glazer brothers out of Old Trafford, according to the Mirror.
The Florida-based family are said to want £4bn to even consider walking away – the figure they think they would have got if the Super League had gone ahead.
They only paid £790million for the Red Devils in 2005. And if they manage to find a buyer willing to match their asking price, they stand to make more than 400 per cent profit on their initial investment.
Throughout their unpopular reign, club debt has remained high while the brothers pocketed multi-million pound annual dividends.
And that is why it would take such a staggering sum to make them sell up, according to city investors cited by the Mirror.
United fans were so enraged by the ESL proposal that they stormed the club’s training ground at Carrington on Thursday and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer himself had to keep the peace.

Yet the manager reckons co-chairman Joel and his family are going nowhere — even though every Big Six owner faces a battle to win the fans round again.
Solskjaer said: “I think the owners that signed up for this proposal have a job on their hands, of course they have.
“We’ve had an apology from Joel and that’s important. He’s told us how committed he is to helping us go forward.
“Unity and everyone coming together for one common goal is the best way forward.
“I’ve had an open and good relationship with them and they’ve been very supportive of me.
“We have shown with the players we’ve signed that we’re committed to improving and they are committed to improve.
“It is all about improving the club, the infrastructure, the facilities and the squad, and I am very confident they will remain committed.”
Joel Glazer, who was vice-chairman of the ESL, issued a letter of apology on Wednesday, admitting the club made a mistake by joining.
But his brother Avram later REFUSED to say sorry when questioned in Florida.
Solskjaer insisted he had no problem with the fans voicing their anger — and is equally adamant the Super League KO will not affect his summer spending.
He added: “I’m still positive and hopeful we can follow through on the plans we’re working on.”
