Yahoo! or Google for Man United Shirts?

4 comments

Bloomberg.com are running a story about Manchester United. They cite an Observer story that says Bryan Glazer, one of Malcolm Glazer's sons, and a Director of Man United, is in talks with Google Inc., Yahoo! Inc., Coca-Cola Co., IBM Corp. and Levi Strauss & Co. to replace Vodafone, the newspaper said, citing unidentified people. Looks like spin, but you never know.

Or indeed...
