The five players include Borussia Dortmund Thomas Meunier and Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic.

World's richest man Elon Musk contemplates buying Manchester United

The fans have been vocal over their dissatisfaction with the current owners, the Glazers family, due to what they term as poor policies and lack of goodwill.
