Lucrece said that he found a great similarity between his works and the art tokens created by the club. He has already contacted representatives of Tezos. The platform is the official partner of the Red Devils.

Lucrece issued his NFT collection earlier and it is more expensive than Manchester United’s collection. The average price of one token is 21 ETH, the minimum price is 17.5 ETH. At the same time, one Manchester United NFT token cost about $40, but they were quickly sold out and delivered over $300 thousand in revenue.

Now the artist intends to conclude an agreement with the club and get a share of the profit from the sale of the collection. According to Lucrece, Tezos co-founder Arthur Breitman agrees with him on that point.

The artist does not directly accuse the club. However, he posted an image on Twitter comparing the two NFTs so that people could form their own opinion. The similarity turned out to be so great that some people wondered if he really did not participate in the creation of the collection.

Later Lucrece reported that United representatives had responded to his message with the intention to come to an amicable solution. He also thanked Tezos for their support.

Last month, the English club presented the Devils digital collectibles, which, according to United, will allow them to create their own community in Web 3.0 and unite all the fans of the team. 20% of the proceeds will be sent to Manchester United Foundation.

Former Man United striker Cristiano Ronaldo has also created his NFT collection in collaboration with Binance. He also was interviewed for Binance.
