London, Jan.19 (ANI): The Glazer family has appealed to Manchester United's players for a multi-million pound loan!
According to The Sun, United stars were stunned by the handout request when they arrived back last week from their Qatar training camp.
Players were handed a prospectus, as owner Malcolm Glazer attempts to raise a staggering 500-million-pounds through a bond issue to refinance huge debts.
A United insider said: "The players don't know what to make of it, really. Most are bemused that the people who pay their wages are basically trying to find out if they can have some back."
He added: "A few of the lads know a good investment when they see one, but not too many seem prepared to put their money where their mouths are!"
United are believed to be offering investors an annual return of seven per cent on the bonds, which start at 50,000-pounds a block. (ANI)
