- Conor McGregor has teased his fans about buying Premier League side Man United
- The UFC lightweight contender was been a fan of the Red Devils when he was a kid
- The Irish fighter revealed former fellow countrymen Roy Keane and Dennis Irwin inspired him to become a fan of the club
The Red Devils also announced that Chief Executive Ed Woodward will also leave his role at the club by the end of the season.
McGregor who was a boyhood United fan, took to his social media handle to ask fans for their view on his sudden plan to buy the Old Trafford outfit.
He said on to 8.6m followers on his Twitter handle:
"Hey guys, I'm thinking about buying Manchester United! What do you think?"
The Notorious once said that former United captains Dennis Irwin and Roy Keane influenced him in supporting the Premier League club as a kid.
"I was attracted to the success and winning mentality of the club and people surrounded by United. Irish legends like Denis Irwin and Roy Keane were dedicated to their craft and had that winning mentality.
"Roy Keane was one of the best midfielders European football has ever seen. Opponents would be mentally beaten before they'd even stepped on to the pitch to face him."
McGregor lost his lightweight rematch to Dustin Poirier via a second round knockout and a trilogy between both fighter have been agreed for July.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Dustin Poirier has defeated Conor McGregor in a lightweight bout at the UFC 257 pay-per-view event in Abu Dhabi.
Poirier unleashed a flurry of punches which left the Notorious stranded against the fence before getting knocked down as the referee stopped the fight.
The American dominated the Irishman with calf kicks in the first round which had an adverse effect on his performance in the second round.
Legit.ng also reported that Sergio Ramos and Conor McGregor could be set for a showdown as the UFC lightweight has jokingly responded to the Real Madrid captain after he was called out.
The Notorious told the Spain international to stay ready after the veteran defender cheekily taunted the Irishman by captioning his Instagram clip with:
“When you're ready, @thenotoriousmma."
The Irish Mixed Martial Artist (MMA) then responded:
“Stay Ready, my brother Sergio! We have a big fight coming up.”
