Adds shares, details on the deal
Nov 17 (Reuters) - Manchester United's MANU.N American owners, the Glazer family, are set to finalise a $33 per share deal with Jim Ratcliffe that will see the British billionaire acquire a 25% stake in the English soccer club, Sky News reported on Friday.
Its U.S.-listed shares jumped 5% in premarket trading. The club did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
