07:00 AM ET 07.07 | Manchester United plans to go public. In the United States, to boot. The record 19-time English champions filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday to hold an initial public offering of stock and become a listed company on the New York Stock Exchange. The deal could ease pressure on the club's cash flow as it tries to keep and acquire players in an attempt to regain English and European titles. While the stock price and the number of shares were not listed, the registration statement said the club hoped to raise a maximum of $100 million -- a place-holding figure that could change before the offering becomes effective. "We intend to use all of our net proceeds from this offering to reduce our indebtedness," the team's filing said. The Glazer family, which bought the club in 2005, would retain control through Class B shares, which would have 10 times the voting power of the stock that would be sold to the public. The Glazers also own the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
