It's 4 years since he bought a 29% share, not since he bought the club outright.
I think you'l find on the 12th May 2005 he aquired a further 28.7% stake of Irish racing tycoons JP McManus and John Magnier meaning he had a total of 70% of the shares.

Which means Glazer had control of Manchester United on 12th May 2005.

He later aquired more shares to complete the formal takeover of club.

To quote Tommy Docherty...

"Manchester United's heart and soul has been sold today - it has changed for ever."
