A reward for locating Malcolm Glazer and his son Joel has been offered by Shareholders United, the Manchester United fans’ group.
The pair are reported to have arrived in England, although that claim was denied categorically by sources at NM Rothschild, the Glazers’ City advisers.
Shareholders United offered a reward of £100 of United shares to the first of its members to find Joel Glazer.
Under a picture of Joel, the website announced: “Wanted: if you see this man, don’t go near him . . . report him to the nearest group of Manchester United fans.”
Nick Towle, the chairman of Shareholders United, said the groups’ intentions were entirely peaceful. “If we can find his hotel, we will go round there with flags to protest. That is all we want to do.”
Last month a group calling itself the Manchester Education Committee issued a statement saying it would “ensure a warm welcome” if any of the Glazers visited England “no matter how large the phalanx of bodyguards”.
