LONDON: A Manchester United fan aims to block rival Manchester City’s goal of football domination by selling off thousands of parcels of a site earmarked by the world’s richest club for a $158 million training complex. Businessman Shaun O’Brien has divided the land at his vehicle recovery company near City’s Etihad Stadium into 18,500 square-foot plots and is selling them for £250 each to ‘ardent Reds and anybody else that feels strongly about our David and Goliath situation’, according to the website being used to make the sales. The website states that the move is aimed at making City negotiate individually and fairly for each plot.
